Clubs and Organizations

Do what you love. Learn something new. Support a favorite cause. At Scripps, you can do all of these through extracurricular clubs and organizations. Being involved in clubs helps you grow as a person, develop friendships, and most importantly, enjoy yourself.

Through Scripps and the 5Cs, you can choose from more than 300 clubs and activities to practice your passion, or find a new one. In addition, Scripps houses The Motley Coffeehouse and Scripps Store, small businesses operated entirely by Scripps students. These thriving enterprises serve students at all five colleges and members of the greater Claremont community.

More detailed descriptions of some Scripps clubs are available here.
