Another type of March Madness is underway for soon-to-be college students across the country…college acceptance and decision season. Choosing a college is a life-changing, exciting moment in the lives of many high school students.
Update: CMC's Model UN team competed in the WorldMUN in Montreal in March and each member of the team won an individual award. "Over the course of one week, we were able to work with, exchange ideas, and share experiences with delegates from around the world," said team member Emma Houston '19.
The championships just keep piling up.
All four of CMS’ winter sports teams (women’s basketball, women’s swimming & diving, men’s swimming & diving and men’s basketball) had a tremendous amount of success this season. Combined, the Athenas and Stags won four SCIAC championships, and two SCIAC Tournament titles. Every winter team this year represented CMS at its respective NCAA Division III Championships in March. Below is an update on each team's results at the NCAA Championships.

In an effort to increase student awareness on campus regarding substance abuse prevention and health promotion, five individuals (three current students and two administrators) represented Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Athletics at the APPLE Institute from Jan. 20-22 in Nashville, Tenn.
One of the many benefits for students attending Claremont McKenna College is having the ability to take classes at the other Claremont Colleges. For Sheena Hui ’20, a 3/2 management and engineering major at CMC, and music and piano performance major at Scripps College, taking classes at the two colleges has been emotionally and intellectually fulfilling.

In the next few weeks, high school seniors contemplating which college or university to attend next fall will have some exciting decisions to make. And for a select group of outstanding seniors who will be matriculating at CMC and make up the Class of 2021, it was a decision best made early.
According to Jennifer Sandoval-Dancs, Assistant Vice President and Director of Admission at CMC, the College offered admission to 155 first-year students during Early Decision I (the first application period, which had a deadline of Nov. 1) and no doubt that was a load off their minds.
