Keila Fisher ’21, Admission Counselor

Favorite Part about Scripps: My favorite part about Scripps, and the reason I chose to go here, is the classroom environment. When you walk into a Scripps classroom, you really have 20 professors, not just one, because your classmates are equally likely to teach you something as your professor is. The Scripps classroom is a […]

Zenaida Reyes, Assistant Director of Admission

Favorite thing about Scripps: In Fall 2019 I attended a CMS Women’s basketball game against Pomona-Pitzer (PP).

Victoria Romero, Vice President for Enrollment

Favorite thing about Scripps: The 5C environment (5C= Scripps, Pitzer, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, and Pomona Colleges) allows students the opportunity to expand their social and academic experiences without giving up all the advantages of a small, residential liberal arts and science college. I appreciate the mission of each of the colleges and also appreciate the […]

The classroom environment is collaborative and supportive, not competitive, and students are encouraged to share their perspectives and actively participate. Why a women’s college: Equal […]
