4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I've never known anyone to choose off-campus living, but those who do not get on-campus housing (or on-partner college's campus housing) , then get an apartment just a street across from Mudd campus for the same price as living in a dorm.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Fancy restaurants, but extremely expensive. I only go if someone else is paying

4 College Sophomore

Administration: With the consortium, we can easily just move onto another campus if we want to be under different rules for alcohol and such

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: On scholarship, grant money, and workstudy. It brought it down to a decent price. Also, students from California can take out an interest-free loan for $4000/yr that you don't have to pay back until 6 months after graduation

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Sober Saturdays and NSP events are nice if you just want to relax. Actual partying is on the other campuses, which is just as convenient.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: 99% of the time it's great. Worst case scenario, if there's nothing else you like for a day, there's always really good salad bar

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Beautiful dorms, but a bit cramped and not all of them have air conditioning yet (they're working on it though)

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports just aren't a very big deal here. It works fine for the athletes, but it's not an important part of campus life for most.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Very easy to take classes at the other schools as well as major in majors offered at the other schools, so within the consortium there's a pretty good variety.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus, and Camp Sec really isn't trying to get you in trouble, they're just there to keep things from getting out of control. All the schools also have the blue lights everywhere that you can use if you ever don't feel safe walking back by yourself. Crime is usually limited to bike theft, but we have heard of one sexual assault incident. However, students are always alerted of any crimes or assaults that occur and the schools take the incidents very seriously.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Scripps works that if you don't get financial aid you will most likely get a scholarship, so I really don't know anyone who didn't receive either. That being said, the college is still very expensive, so no matter how much aid you receive, you will still probably be paying quite a bit.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The Village has lots of great eating spots, and prices range from very expensive to not that bad.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: So many parties all the time! There is pretty much always something going on Thursday-Saturday (and Sun, Mon, and Wed too if you can find it) whether you want a larger party, somewhere to dance, low-key hangouts, whatever! It's also pretty non-exclusionary from what I've found so most parties are 5C, so if you want to go out you don't have to worry about knowing someone to get in. Overall, if you wanted to constantly have fun you probably could but everyone obviously balances social life with academics.

Administration: Overall I think administration is here to help us and not hinder us, so I think they do a pretty good job of that

Local Area: The actual town of Claremont is adorable with lots of cute shops and eateries to go to (though expensive sometimes, but still a great place to walk around) and the city of Claremont offers the other elements that you want that aren't available in the town of Claremont. So we have a Target and Trader Joes and other larger retailers but also smaller places so it's a very good mix and all is either walking distance (for the village and Trader Joes) or short drive by car.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: close to LA, but a car is necessary to access it..

5 College Sophomore

Majors: very good assortment and love that you can take classes off campus

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: the biggest issues are bike theft and sexual assault

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: could be more variety but it's pretty good and variety

4 College Sophomore

Administration: administration is pretty good, they are fair when needed

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: dorms are the absolute best... you will likely get a single as an upperclassman

5 College Junior

Local Area: Claremont is super cute, and LA isn't too far away

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The Claremont school's make an interesting dynamic in terms of relationships. Scripps is all women - but there are plenty of guys at the other Claremont schools.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Scripps is definitely a very unique place that is not for everyone. Luckily, it is the perfect place for some. Academics are a first and foremost concern in looking at colleges, and I feel that this is also the leading concern of Scripps and its student body. Classes and faculty provide an intimate setting for in-depth learning and the personal pursuit of knowledge. The emphasis on learning, the openness to exploration, and the acceptance of what is different and exceptional are all things that students love about the school, and things that contribute to positive overall growth and development, as well as self realization. The physical comforts and beauty of the college are nothing compared to the mental challenges and the amazing student body. From classes to activities, students are taught to work beyond the bare necessity and think beyond the mere possibilities. The atmosphere here has a sense of healthy competition that encourages students to feed off each other and mature together.

Stress is a constant here, but over time, it becomes a motivational factor that does not allow you to give up on yourself. Overtime, students learn perseverance and determination. Success can only come from hard work and passion for what you are doing.
