Claremont is by no means a nighttime hot spot, and this applies especially to Scripps. The Scripps campus is traditionally the quiet campus, and so most students find events on other campuses or completely off campus. Organizations have small parties, but there are no fraternities or sororities to throw parties every weekend, so Scrippsies turn to the other four colleges. Every month or so, the Scripps College Council throws a themed party. However, these parties are known to be attended mainly only by a small group of Scripps students, and they tend to not be very popular due to more rigid rules and policies than the other schools.
Unless a student has a car or easy access to transportation, the nightlife is very limited. Even students with cars do not usually go out to bars or nightclubs because it is not worth driving to LA for a drink, and students usually only have that amount of time availability after finals or during breaks. The most popular forms of nightlife at Scripps consist of parties at other campuses and individual dorm gatherings, usually through friends or acquaintances. There are, however, selective parties throughout the year that are annual traditions and are known to attract large crowds from every college, and these would make up the high point of nightlife in Claremont.
