Scripps College Reviews
Review Scripps College
Great academic programs that are also very flexible. Diversity in the student body is getting better, overall a supportive academic and living community!
Honestly I am so happy that I chose Scripps for a school. The people here and at the 5Cs in general are honestly what make it. Everyone is so motivated or passionate about something and everyone is here for the academics so you meet a lot of like-minded people. Of course, like every school, there are things that I wish I could change about Scripps. I wish we had more of a dorm culture and I wish that Scripps had a better alcohol policy that didn't encourage unsafe practices in fear of being caught or only being allowed to party off-campus. Some of my favorite things about Scripps is how connected I feel to the school. There are constantly events for just Scripps students and because it's such a small school there are so, so many ways to get involved. The women here are wonderful and although we all groan about Core the first semester really does teach you a lot. Scripps is pretty humanities-focused so sometimes as a STEM student you can feel like you're not as appreciated or celebrated. But Keck is rather good at what it does and the 5Cs really only hire PhD's so most professors are here because they like to teach and want to be in a small classroom environment. The housing here can be really amazing or only ok and room selection each year is incredibly stressful. Always lots to do on the weekends (and weekdays if you want to) and parties are usually school-sponsored (I know it's weird but it's cool) so everyone is invited. They're almost all dance parties and then you'll pregame before or go to kickbacks afterward. The career center, imo, does a really great job and are available for any and all questions relating to internships, future jobs, etc. Going to a 5C really does students a solid for future careers because if people know the schools they really carry a great reputation. People do amazing things here. The stereotypes about each school are equally true and untrue and you'll meet all types of people. Dining hall food is honestly really good
Scripps is very academically challenging and a lot is expected of the students. That being said, if you are willing to rise to the challenge, there are tons of amazing things Scripps has to offer. While the party scene isn't super happening at Scripps and RA's are very strict, it's easy to find parties at the other 5C's. The dorms are beautiful and sizable, but lack a sense of community. The campus is gorgeous and the facilities are fantastic. Definitely a very niche school--I've seen people love it and I've seen people hate it.
