College Sophomore

Greek Life: I had to answer some qs on Greek life, but they're actually N/A because there is none. One or two "unofficial frats" at Claremont McKenna, but they're more like school clubs and very unlike the stereotypical frat.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at my school.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Claremont only has one frat so there isn't that much presence at all. They throw 1-2 parties a year but I've never been aware of them otherwise.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek Life.

There are no sororities or fraternities in Claremont, and if that is an issue to you, then Scripps is definitely not the right school for you. The fact that Greek life is non-existent at Scripps has never been an issue to the students and it is rather a factor that most students appreciate. It is rare to find a student at Scripps who does not have multiple majors and minors, or is not active and involved in several organizations or interest groups on and off campus, and so generally there is neither time nor need for a sorority. The top concern for the majority of student at Scripps is academics, and the little spare time that each woman has is usually devoted to an organization of interest or hobby.

The concept of a sorority is not at all important to any of the students here, and although many people have referred to Scripps as one large sorority, exclusivity is not a quality held high on campus, as sisterhood and health of mind and body are principles stressed by Scripps. It can be said that the students find enough support and all that a sorority would offer in each other and the student body as a whole, so there is no desire for the presence of Greek life.
