Campus Community

Participation in live events is a central component of a Scripps College experience. Lectures, concerts, athletic events, 5C events, Scripps Presents and community programs, symposiums, and performances create opportunities to share important perspectives, commemorate experiences, find commonalities with others, create meaningful networks between members of our community, and strengthen bonds with the College. Learning, connecting, and finding gratification through these experiences contribute greatly to the academic and mental health of our community.

The health and safety of attendees and event staff will drive all in-person event decisions, and events must comply with current guidance and restrictions from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), California Division of Occupational Safety and Health (known as Cal/OSHA) for employees of the college, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH), and College policy.

Currently, guests must attest to being free of any COVID-19 related symptoms. Masks are recommended, but not required for indoor events.

The College has been working to provide the Scripps campus community access to training and support to host both in-person and virtual events. Our goal is to continue to create an environment for civil discourse and the robust exploration of ideas. With this in mind, please review the following best practices guidelines for producing an on-campus event.

Preliminary Planning

  • What is the primary purpose of your event?
  • What is the level of support needed?
  • Who is your target audience? Should this event be open to the public or should it be open to the Scripps or 7C community only?
  • Will this program be a “live” event or pre-recorded?

Request an Event

  • Request a venue (in-person or virtual)  no less than 21 days in advance of the planned event. The earlier you reserve the better!
  • Complete and submit your reservation through the VEMS. Both physical venues and the College’s Zoom Webinar accounts are available for request.
  • The Public Events staff will follow up with each request within 48 hours of submission.


  • Due to evolving COVID health and safety guidance, we recommend ticketing any public events to ensure that audiences are kept informed of the College’s attendance protocols. When you event is confirmed, the Office of Public Events will also provide information on ticketing resources.

Publicize Your Event

After your event is confirmed, promote it to the campus and beyond by completing and submitting the Public Event Announcement Submission Form.

  • Your confirmed event will be published to the calendar upon completion and receipt of the announcement submission form.
  • Events Digest email: distributed to the campus weekly (Sunday)
  • Events included in weekly digest must be submitted three weeks in advance.

The Claremont Colleges:

  • The Claremont Colleges Calendar
  • 7C print and online calendar
  • The printed calendar is managed by TCCS and includes select, not all, events to limit printing costs.
