Letter from the Alumnae Association President

My role as Alumnae Association president brings me to the Scripps campus several times each year, and it’s always a treat to visit. Of course, there are dozens more times that I’d like to attend a campus celebration or event but can’t. Fortunately, there are a number of ways that I can stay connected to the College, even when I’m unable to be there in person.

For campus and community news, this magazine is obviously a great way to stay informed. The 10th & Columbia alumnae e-newsletter, published every other month, also includes profiles of alums, calls for nominations for volunteer leadership positions and Alumnae Association awards, and campus news of interest to alums. You can follow the College’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts to keep up with what’s happening, and President Tiedens’s office sends out important news via email.

Whether you live in Southern California or happen to be visiting the area, you are always welcome at campus events, from Reunion Weekend to commencement to the Scripps Presents speaker series. But, even if you can’t attend, you may be able to watch online—more and more Scripps events are being live-streamed on Facebook, and many are recorded so that you can watch them any time on the College’s YouTube channel. Visit to catch up on some of the amazing Scripps Presents events from this past semester, including talks with Lena Waithe, Abbi Jacobson, and Liz Lerman.

If you would like to hear from Scripps more often, update your communications preferences with the Office of Alumnae Engagement by contacting them at (909) 621-8054 or .I hope you find new ways to connect! And if you have ideas or suggestions for other ways, let us know.

Best wishes,

Kendra Armer ’93
