Scripps’ 32-acre campus is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful college campuses in the world. Located in Southern California, the College is regularly featured as one of America’s most beautiful college campuses  in national publications, including Forbes, Princeton Review, Business Insider, and Travel & Leisure magazine.

The City of Claremont

Only 35 miles from downtown Los Angeles, and with a population of just 35,000, the quintessential college town of Claremont is known as the City of Trees and PhDs. The center of Claremont is the Village, a strollable downtown destination where café tables dot the sidewalks, and shops invite browsing on tree-lined streets. A movie theater, street festivals, and weekly farmers’ market provide entertainment.
