Welcome to the 20th Most Selective College in the USA!
Back at the start of April I wrote that Pitzer College’s selectivity had gone dropped to 15.7% from 24% the year previously. Now, Yahoo! has put out a list saying that Pitzer is the 20th most selective college in the United States. That’s crazy.
So, you may ask, how do we at Pitzer welcome our selective admits to the campus?
The answer, you will find, is this:
That’s right: A flash mob.
With only a week’s notice, student workers in the Office of Admission choreographed and put together a flash mob of approximately 40 students to “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO. Dancing with the students were yours truly, Dean of Students Moya Carter, Vice President for Admission/Financial Aid Angel Perez, and, in an amazing performance, President Laura Skandera Trombley. To everyone’s credit with the high energy in the soon-to-be-viral video, this all happened at 9:25 am on a Friday morning.
How cool is that?
