Fostering Communication, Trust, and Community Care Through Leadership Opportunities

I have always been drawn to leadership opportunities that focus on fostering communication, trust, and community care.  Being a first-generation, low-income Mexican-American raised in the city of Pomona, I am conscious of the impact communal care has and the ways it nurtures my constant growth and potential. This innate drive to create community has inspired […]

The In’s and Out’s of Intramural Sports at Scripps College

Hey Everyone!  A new activity I have started this spring semester is my roommate and I joined a trivia team through CMS (Claremont, Mudd, Scripps) recreation, which means it qualifies as an intramural sport! I was really intrigued by the intramural sports that CMS has and decided to ask around and find out more.  At […]

CMS and the College Athlete Life

When I started my college search process, I knew I needed to find a team with the perfect balance of academics and athletics. Water polo was very important to me, and I did not want to sacrifice my sport, but neither was I willing to sacrifice rigorous academics or the ability to put my academics […]

Turf Dinner: 5C Club & Org Extravaganza

Hi everybody! When I was a prospective student, I remember being really antsy to join a bunch of clubs and organizations in college.

Exam season has been upon us, and it can become more overwhelming with finals being just around the corner. While stress is a natural part of the college experience, it is important to manage stress and maintain your well-being.

Highlighting FirstGen@Scripps

Hey y’all!  With First Gen Student Day passing just last week, I want to highlight the FirstGen@ Scripps program because in high school I didn’t even know what being a first gen college student meant, and even less about programs and resources for first-gen students. My parents did not have the chance to attend a […]

Scripps during the Time of Coronavirus

As highschool seniors are applying to colleges around the country, a sense of uncertainty still lingers about the ‘college experience’ during the pandemic. I hope to bring a sense of relief by talking about my experience with the transition from in-person classes to virtual college or as many have called it, “ZOOM University”.  Initially, the […]

Livin’ La Vita Italiana: Language Halls at Scripps

One part of Scripps culture that I appreciate is that education can exist outside of the classroom. An excellent example of that fact is the option to live in a Language Hall for students who know, or are learning, Spanish, French, German, and Italian. Having studied Italian for a year and preparing for a semester […]

It was definitely scary as an out-of-state student to come to Scripps not really knowing anyone. Luckily, through clorgs (clubs and organizations) and campus […]
