About Us

Introducing Sagecast, the podcast of Pomona College. Recorded in the studios of KSPC, Pomona’s FM radio station, this podcast offers our extended community a chance to listen in on vibrant intellectual conversations with Pomona College faculty and students. In Season 1, we talked with faculty members about how they came to study what they study, teach what they teach and love the field they love. On Season 2, we talked with a variety of Pomona College students about topics and experiences that shape their collegiate lives. In Season 3, we examine mentorship stories throughout the college.

PAYS with Danny Ta '22 and Ezequiel Estrada '20

The Pomona College Academy for Youth Success (PAYS) program has been a Pomona College staple for over 15 years. The summer program enrolls up to 90 local high school students (30 rising sophomores, 30 rising juniors, & 30 rising seniors) and seeks to support them in preparing for admission to selective and highly selective colleges and universities. We select a new class of 30 ninth graders (rising sophomores) every May. PAYS participants engage in a thought-provoking combination of faculty-led courses, activities, workshops, projects and field trips during the intensive 4-week, residential program as well as throughout the academic year. On this episode, Danny Ta '22 and Ezequiel Estrada '20 join us to talk about their experiences as PAYS students and how it impacted their decision to come to Pomona College.
