Reasons behind the name, “Route 47”
In 1964, a student project to determine whether the number 47 appeared more often in nature than other random numbers turned into a wholesale 47 hunt that has continued to this day. Since then, Pomona students and alumni have taken a special fondness to this number. Additionally, Pomona College is located very close to the historic Route 66. The CDO staff felt this recruiting system offers students a route to opportunities outside the campus. Hence, we came up with the name Route 47.
