5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: No issues here -- health center and campus safety are great.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health care plan for students is complicated as far as getting refunded co-pays etc and it is always difficult to see a doctor, especially because the health center is closed on weekends (I got sick the weekend before finals and was SOL). Campus policy don't enforce policy (drugs, etc) but they are visible and patrol regularly and will help if needed.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Camp Sec has a no chase policy...

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never felt in any danger at Scripps. There is little crime except for bike theft once or twice during the semester. Campus safety is always on call and will even walk you to your dorm if you have a late class and don't feel comfortable walking back alone.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always hear people say "You're more likely to have your hair tie stolen than your laptop if you leave both out." People claim their spots in the library and at dining halls with MacBooks and iPhones, something I haven't heard true of any other school. Overall it's a really trusting and safe community.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Most students in Claremont feel completely safe and secure on campus both during the day and at night. Everyone is advised to not be out alone during late hours of the night, but the distance between campuses is very short so it is not a major concern amongst students, even though it probably should be. Most crimes that occur in Claremont are relatively small and occur off campus or on the outskirts of campus at night when security is more plentiful and patrols are on duty all around campus. There are emergency call towers throughout the campuses, and Campus Safety will escort anyone at any time that they feel necessary, whether it be because they feel unsafe or otherwise; reasons are never required and questions are never asked. All Scripps dorms require ID card access as well as individual keys for dorm rooms. None of the dorms have doors outside of card access buildings, with exception to the dorm-apartments. Also, all guests must be escorted by a Scripps student into the dorms, and no guest may wander about in the dorms unaccompanied by a student.

Security is taken very seriously at all five campuses, but most students will agree that the degree of safety is stressed even more so at Scripps. This could be perhaps because it is a women's college or due to the fact that the Campus Security building is located on Scripps campus. All freshmen attend a safety meeting that has become an orientation tradition during which they are taught to memorize the security emergency number and receive a "rape whistle" that will alert and warrant the response of all students and personnel.
