Sagehen Connect

Sagehen Connect is Pomona College’s official alumni directory, where students can search and connect with alumni in their areas of interest. The site is free to use, and we encourage you to become a member! You’ll gain access to alumni groups, and can even become a SageCoach – mentoring current students with insider tips and advice.
