I am excited to announce that Claremont McKenna College is now hosting current student panels for international prospective students! These panels are a great opportunity for your students to interact with our current international students and hear about their experiences at CMC. If you are specifically interested in CMC or just generally interested in liberal arts and sciences colleges, this is their time to learn more about the student experience at a top ten, residential liberal arts college.
Throughout the fall we are hosting regional sessions for China, India, Europe, Middle East & Africa, South East Asia, Latin America and more. You will have the opportunity to ask questions specific to their experiences, needs, and expectations for college. You can register for our international current student panels at https://connect.cmc.edu/portal/internationalevents. No matter where you are located, please encourage them to join us!
Claremont McKenna College is a highly selective, applied liberal arts college guided by its mission to prepare students for thoughtful and responsible leadership in the private, public, and social sectors. A member of the highly regarded Claremont Colleges, CMC brings together a collaborative and cohesive community of broadly diverse students with a distinguished faculty recognized for their excellence in teaching and scholarship. Community and diversity is at the heart of our institution, as evident by our 17% international student population from over 46 countries.

In this 12-week class, a continuation of our popular Uncommon Summer course, you’ll join a community of other motivated do-ers to gain tools and resources for brainstorming, planning, and launching a self-directed project.
Creating a self-directed project will teach you to work outside your comfort zone, develop new strengths, discover your weaknesses, become more emotionally intelligent, and build your confidence. As the originator and decision-maker, you’ll learn entrepreneurial skills like divergent thinking, project scoping, pitching, and productivity.
As part of this course, you’ll:
- Receive access to an OnDemand video curriculum with all the tools you need to create a self-directed project
- Join bi-weekly workshop sessions with Bonnie Swift (Stanford Storytelling Project), to help you brainstorm, give and receive feedback, and troubleshoot challenges as they arise
- Collaborate with a group of motivated peers via a private Discord community where you’ll have the chance to make personal connections, build community, and work in teams.
- Read and watch a curated selection of articles & videos on how to grow as a self-directed learner
Who is this for? Students who:
- Have a cool project idea that they want to make happen this fall
- Are already working on a project and looking for more ideas/tools/inspiration to take it to the next level
- Want to make a tangible contribution to their community or the larger world
- Have a lot of creative ideas, but just need some structure in order to put them into practice
… But really we’re helping to prepare the next generation of leaders who are coming of age in this highly complex and unprecedented historical moment. In that sense, if you’re between the ages of 14-17, you’re welcome to join us!
This is not for students who:
- Already have a crazy busy fall planned
- Are already stressed out by the whole college process and are reading this feeling like OMG this is one. more. thing.
But if this sounds interesting:
