Meet Louise ’24

Hello everyone! I’m Louise, a Sophomore from Seattle, WA. I’m still undeclared, but I’m intending to major in Spanish, Latin American, and Caribbean literature and cultures, with a potential dual major in anthropology. Outside of class I’m involved in PZ Threads, the 5C sustainable fashion magazine, and am looking forward to getting involved with choir or acapella at the 5Cs as well. I love spending my free time reading, listening to music, and exploring the Scripps campus.

I toured many colleges within my search process, but Scripps was the first one that made me feel at home. Looking around the campus on my tour, I could see myself being friends with everyone I saw, and I could visualize what my day-to-day life would entail: doing my readings on the lawn, grabbing coffee before class, spending some afternoons by the pool. My first year ended up looking a little different, but even online, each person I met at Scripps reminded me why I felt right at home on my tour. The support and friendship I’ve found at Scripps are irreplaceable, and every day I am grateful for my decision.

The college process is tough! But at the end of the day, remember that wherever you end up, your experience is up to you. You will make the most of any decision you make. Apply to places that make you feel at home, just like Scripps did for me, and your perfect fit will find you.

I’m excited to show all of you a little taste of what Scripps’s life is like! Please feel free to reach out at any time, I’d love to hear from you. My email is
