So Much to Do

Most students will tell you what they love most about Scripps is the freedom to explore their interests, and this is what makes the campus such a vibrant community. There is no shortage of arts and events on campus; whether it’s a speaker who challenges convention, an innovative student-directed dance show, or a casual concert on Bowling Green Lawn, life at Scripps is always exciting.

Live Concerts and Performances

Scripps College is a center for world-class music, with internationally renowned musicians and distinguished music faculty performing regularly on campus. Couple that with the Levitt on the Lawn outdoor concert series and regular performances at The Motley Coffeehouse by local bands and student groups, you’ll find there’s always a festive and atmosphere when you visit the College.

Noon Academy Lectures

Valorie Thomas · December 2, 2014

What we now term "Afrofuturism," despite recent acclaim from mainstream media and arts communities, has been inseparable from African and African Diaspora aesthetics and philosophy since the beginnings of African time. Afrofuturism holds African Diaspora knowledge and philosophical principles in place; it is an epistemological process that manifests across genres and so defies easy categorization. In her talk, Thomas tracks specific streams of Black women's critical commentaries enacted via Afrofuturism as a case in point; as a move toward decolonizing imagination and consolidated resistance to objectification, alienation and dissection.
