About Scripps College

Scripps College, located in the beautiful city of Claremont, California, is a private, not-for-profit institution that has been providing exceptional education for over 90 years. As one of the prestigious Claremont Colleges, Scripps stands at the forefront of women’s education, empowering its students to become ambitious, innovative, and globally-minded leaders.

Established in 1926, Scripps College was founded by Ellen Browning Scripps, a philanthropist and influential figure in women’s education. Her vision was to create a college exclusively for women that would offer a rigorous liberal arts education and foster an environment of intellectual curiosity and social responsibility. Today, Scripps College continues to honor her legacy, offering a transformative educational experience that empowers women to make a positive impact on society.

Nestled in the vibrant town of Claremont, which is often referred to as “The City of Trees and PhDs,” Scripps students are surrounded by a unique and intellectually stimulating environment. Claremont is known for its charming small-town feel coupled with the academic energy generated by the seven Claremont Colleges, which include Pomona College, Claremont McKenna College, Harvey Mudd College, and Pitzer College, among others. This consortium of colleges allows students to enjoy a robust cross-registration system, expanding their academic options and fostering collaboration among scholars from different disciplines.

The Scripps College campus itself is a sight to behold. With its stunning Spanish Colonial Revival architecture and beautifully manicured gardens, the campus provides a serene and inspiring atmosphere for learning and personal growth. The iconic Elm Tree Lawn, a central gathering place for students, is a symbol of Scripps’ commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship. The residential halls, ranging from historic buildings to modern residences, create close-knit communities where students can cultivate lifelong friendships and engage in meaningful discussions outside the classroom.

At Scripps College, academic excellence is paramount. Students can choose from a wide range of majors and interdisciplinary programs, including the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and fine arts. The college boasts an impressive faculty of dedicated scholars who are committed to teaching, scholarship, and mentorship. Small class sizes enable students to engage in vibrant discussions, receive personalized attention, and form close relationships with faculty members who become mentors and advisors throughout their academic journey.

Beyond the classroom, Scripps offers numerous opportunities for students to explore their passions and develop leadership skills. The college has a vibrant student life, with over 60 student-led clubs and organizations covering a wide range of interests and causes. From participating in community service initiatives to leading sustainability projects, Scripps students are actively involved in making a difference on campus and in the surrounding community.

In addition to its strong academic programs and vibrant community, Scripps College also places a strong emphasis on diversity and inclusion. The college is committed to fostering an inclusive environment where students from all backgrounds feel valued and supported. Scripps actively promotes social justice and equity, providing resources and support for underrepresented students while also encouraging dialogue and awareness through various campus initiatives.

In conclusion, Scripps College is a distinguished institution that excels in providing an exceptional liberal arts education for women. Located in the vibrant city of Claremont, California, Scripps offers a transformative educational experience within a collaborative and intellectually stimulating environment. With its dedication to academic excellence, emphasis on social responsibility, and commitment to diversity and inclusion, Scripps College prepares its students to become influential leaders and change-makers in their chosen fields.
