President's Annual Report
WELCOMING OUR NEWEST ALUMNI
We are proud to welcome the 284 ambitious, smart, energetic, and competitive members of the Class of 2007, already making themselves known in Claremont. The 134 women and 150 men in the freshman class scored a median 1390 on their SATs, and nearly 83 percent were in the top 10 percent of their high school class. They are leaders in the true CMC tradition, active in student government, athletics, debate, music, drama, travel, and community service. CMC's excellent financial aid program, which enables CMC to admit all students on a need-blind basis and to meet all financial need, is critical to the College's ability to attract these outstanding students. Significantly, over 70% of the Class of 2007 received financial aid.
Additionally, joining us this year are two double-legacy students: Erin Hurley '07 and Christopher Davis '07. Erin's parents are Kathleen (Evans) '80 and Kelly Hurley '79. Coincidently, her mother, Kathleen (Evans) was the first woman to enroll at CMC when the College began admitting women in 1976. Chris' parents are Nancy (Nelson) '80 and George Davis '79. The Davis family has a special connection to Claremont; a cousin was a CMC student last year, and Chris' grandparents went to Pomona and Scripps colleges.
