Notice of Events Suspension

The rapid spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Los Angeles County and throughout California has prompted an abundance of caution among the sponsors of public events statewide and locally. Consistent with guidance from local, state, and national public health agencies to avoid large public gatherings and practice social distancing, Scripps College is cancelling ALL non-essential events effective immediately. Please observe the following guidelines for events, meetings, and gatherings of all sizes:

  • Events not related to core academic activities should be cancelled, postponed, or conducted in a manner that does not bring large groups of guests and members of the community together in a single venue. Core academic activities will be restricted to Claremont Colleges community members only.
  • The Office of Admission and Financial Aid has cancelled Admitted Students Day and is suspending visits to campus, including information sessions, interviews, overnight stays, and class visits. The Admission office will also be closed to the public.
  • Scripps Presents programs and other series, performances, and exhibitions will be cancelled until further notice.
  • To practice social distancing or avoiding gathering in close proximity for extended periods of time, the College encourages faculty and staff to reduce the number of in-person meetings and conduct as many conversations online or via telephone.

Please contact the Public Events department to explore alternative programming options for scheduled programs. We regret any inconvenience these scheduling changes may cause and we appreciate your adherence to the above guidelines.
