Claremont McKenna College New Student Party

Northern California New Student Party

Sunday, August 2, 2020 

5:00 p.m. PT

Hosted by Janice Whitaker P'18, Wesley Whitaker '18, and Mark Munro '12

Join alumni, students, and parents in Northern California as we welcome incoming students and their families to the CMC community. This informal gathering will provide a great opportunity for alumni, parents, and current students to meet the new generation of CMCers, share favorite CMC memories, and provide some words of wisdom for navigating through this next exciting chapter. For incoming students and families, this is your chance to become acquainted with the CMC community, get to know others in your area, and have your questions answered by those who have come before you!

For the best experience, we ask that parents and students access these virtual parties from two separate devices. In many cases, parents will be placed in a virtual breakout room where they will be able to ask questions and connect with our parents, while students will join a secondary virtual breakout room with the opportunity to meet other students and hear from alumni and staff.

New Student Parties, held virtually this year, are fun and festive regional programs designed to help new students and their families connect with others in their area before this exciting new journey begins. Meet fellow parents, incoming students, and CMC staff members who can't wait to welcome you to CMC! Both students and parents are invited, and will “Zoom” together at the beginning of the call. Each group will then be placed in a “breakout” room, so joining on two separate devices (computer, tablet, phone, etc.) if possible is encouraged.
