From Scripps College

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.
