Scripps College Reviews
I loved attending Scripps! An excellent environment in which to develop my whole self, intellectually, emotionally, and socially. As an alum, I am grateful every day for my time there.
I loved my college experience. Professors were, for the most part, knowledgeable and extremely accessible. The culture there is not heavily competitive and many students share an easy going attitude. Overall, I have had a great 4 years at Scripps.
The food is great and lots of inspiring women! Scripps is a beautiful campus, it’s like going to school at a resort.
