Domestic Exchange Student Reflections

Alston Bowman - Pitzer College

I am currently on exchange at Pitzer College located in Claremont, California. With weather being one of the biggest factors as to why I chose California for an exchange, it has been absolutely beautiful with 70 degrees in the winter.

My classes have been relatively typical as far a college curriculum difficulty. However, with a different demographic of students, I have enjoyed getting to know my peers through a multitude of group assignments and projects. Being in a coed classroom has been a learning experience and so far, has been a great way to hear about different experiences as well as witness different forms of art.

In the future, I have plans of connecting with alums in Los Angeles and going camping over spring break!
