Scripps is the all-women’s college of The Claremont Colleges. Scripps women have access to the college itself as well as the Claremont Consortium, which include Claremont McKenna College, Harvey Mudd College, Pomona College, and Pitzer College. The college offers 65 majors and programs of study, including programs offered through the consortium. Scripps is also the only institution on the west coast that offers an art conservation program.
Scripps students are passionate about their education, supportive of one another, and thrive in a collaborative environment. Students are part of a close-knit community, with ample campus resources and programming targeted to supplement life outside the classroom. The First-Generation@Scripps program, designed for students who are the first in their family to attend a four-year college, guides you through your first year and beyond through exposure to faculty, resources, and workshops. The program also strives to bring awareness to issues surrounding first-generation students and staff at Scripps.
Fun facts: Every Wednesday afternoon, Scripps hosts an “Afternoon Tea”. The tradition began in 1931 as a way for students, faculty, and staff to convene, relax, and enjoy interesting conversation. The campus is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places and according to Forbes magazine, is considered one of the top 10 most beautiful college campuses.
