Scripps’ place as a women’s college in a consortium of five undergraduate colleges gives you a unique vantage point, a different view of the world than any single liberal arts college can provide. As a member of The Claremont Colleges, Scripps students are able to take classes, pursue one (or two!) of 65 majors, join clubs, and attend events at our partner campuses, and eat in any of our 17 campus eateries.
Located in sunny Southern California, our students are often found heading to the beach, hiking in the mountains, seeking adventure in the desert, and exploring the vibrant, diverse city of Los Angeles. Housing is guaranteed for all four years for our roughly 1000 students. Small, discussion-based classes (averaging 16 students) are the norm and the perfect environment to use your voice in an empowering, yet challenging community.

Scripps College Reviews
Honestly, the party scene is perfect for me. There isn't something every single night, but Thursdays and Saturdays are traditionally going out days, and sometimes Fridays as well. For being told that Scripps doesn't have a great party scene, I was pleasantly surprised.
I appreciate the substantial gay community, although it doesn't show in particular affinity groups. My friends that are interested in men seem pretty content, as we naturally interact a lot thru classes and events.
Not a lot of peer pressure or academic competition among the students, at least for me. Resources like math help & the counseling center aren't bad (!!), but you definetly have to hunt for them. We joke that there's no administration left on campus.
The best parts about Scripps are the Motley Coffeehouse, the athletic facilities (try Roberts' drop-in classes), and the beautiful campus. The food is actually pretty good even if people like to complain. The colleges are close to LA but just far enough away to make traveling in a bit of a pain.
