Pomona Events Committee

PEC is...

Pomona Events Committee (PEC) is a subcommittee of ASPC that uses the student fees that you pay to help sponsor events for students. Our mission is to implement social, cultural, and recreational events to meet the broad social needs of the students of Pomona College. These events range anywhere from films on the weekends, to parties in Doms, to Symposium, to various off campus events.

PEC does...

As a Claremont College student, you have most likely been to several PEC events. We are most known for our big annual parties like Harwood Halloween and Smiley 80s, but we throw events like Table Manners, Symposium, Kick-Ass Snack and much more: Winter Formal, Movie Trivia Night, NO-CHELLA Festival, Covers Night, De-Stress Extravaganza, Pendleton Pool Party, Knotts Scary Farm, Ontario Reign Hockey Games, Swan Lake, etc.

We love planning events and bringing in entertainment that gets students talking, thinking, and dancing. We are always looking for ways to get involved. If you have any ideas or would like to co-sponsor an event with PEC, contact
