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.

Ongoing Series

The Humanities Institute

Founded in 1986, the Humanities Institute presents a thematic program each semester about a topic related to the humanities. As part of Scripps’ tradition of interdisciplinary education, these programs include conferences, lectures, exhibitions, performances, and film series and bring together both well-established and cutting-edge scholars.

Tuesday Noon Academy

This hour-long, weekly series features thought-provoking presentations by Scripps College faculty and visiting scholars, and is open to the greater community. Bring your lunch or purchase it at the Malott Commons dining hall. Coffee and tea are provided. Doors to the Hampton Room open at 11:45am.

Levitt on the Lawn

Levitt on the Lawn at Scripps College is an outdoor concert series presented in conjunction with the Levitt Pavilions and sponsored by Scripps alumna Elizabeth Levitt Hirsch ’74. Like all Levitt concert events, the series seeks to build community through music; however, the Scripps College series is unique among the other Levitt venues in that it primarily features female artists and women-led musical groups.

Scripps Tea

This long-standing Scripps tradition is held in Seal Court every Wednesday from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. A great time to make new friends and catch up with old ones, teas are sponsored by Scripps offices and departments, student clubs, 5C programs, and greater community organizations.
