- Claremont Colleges System
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 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, Scripps 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. Campus-sponsored housing is guaranteed all four years for our roughly 1100 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
Just a little tip: take classes in the anthropology or FGSS department! I loved all my professors from those classes. They are super engaging and always willing to help students academically and personally.
Cross-campus classes are not a thing. If your major is not offered at Scripps, don’t come, you won't get classes.
Deans work remotely and are impossible to reach, and couldn’t care less. Professors generally care about their students, but are way far left.
No diversity of opinion tolerated. Rampant cancel culture. Students are cliquey. If you don’t make friends right away, you will be alone. Nothing to do on campus/5C community. Scripps is absolutely not worth it. They do not care about you, your education, or preparing you in any way for a career.
