    Outdoors at Claremont: Claremont is nestled at the foot of a mountain chain and in the desert, which means that while there is hiking, it's all dry and shrubby. There is a popular trail circuit that runs up into the mountains very close to the school. While great for exercise, it's quite boring. Better hiking can be found away from Claremont but within easy driving distance. We are also fairly close to Big Bear, which is great in the winter if you enjoy skiing. Within Claremont, there are little parks tucked away, and a desert-style botanical garden. The college campuses are also popular choices for community members to use as a park, and it is not uncommon to see children and dogs plays on campus.

    Public Services at Claremont: The main contact I have had with the city's public services is for when students at the school need assistance--such as needing Paramedics for health conditions or from drinking too much. Their response time is great and they work well with the security provided by the colleges. The laws are strict as the area is a little upscale. For example, there is no overnight parking without a permit. However, unlike many other cities, you can get an overnight pass from your computer, and you don't even need to print anything!

    Crime & Safety at Claremont: Although Claremont is located close to Pomona, which in the past had a large amount of crime, the area around the schools is pretty safe. The most frequent issue seems to be stolen bikes or bike parts, although the college itself has its fair share of typical crimes, such as sexual misconducts involving drunk students. As a woman, I feel safe walking alone at night.

    Weather at Claremont: Wait, there are four seasons? Claremont, like the rest of Los Angeles, enjoys world-renowned pleasant weather. Standard wear includes flip-flops, and light jackets or only needed for a couple of months. It hardly rains, so while there are drought conditions, there is little impact save for water conservation actions. For people coming from out-of-state, earthquakes are a concern, but for locals they are a bit of pause and perhaps some excitement, rather than a worry. Building codes are stricter in California than in other areas, and major earthquakes are rare.

    Employment at Claremont: Claremont is a very small area, so finding jobs locally is difficult. While there are plenty of jobs such as working in grocery stores, unless you work in academia job prospects as slim. However, if you can find work in a neighboring area, such as Upland, or Pomona, Claremont would be a lovely place in which to live.
