Pomona in 47 Charts

These are based on my experience as a Pomona student. For reference, in case some of my jokes seem dated (the horror), I attended my fine alma mater from 2005 to 2009. To any current or fellow former students, if you have questions, complaints, or just feel the urge to throw in your obviously enlightened two cents, I am not providing my contact info so please restrain yourself. To any parents of current students, here is the answer to the only question you probably would want answered: yes, I am employed!!
