Each year, Scripps College is excited to welcome our newest students to our community! Orientation is just one way to help our students feel at home and part of the Scripps family. Scripps remains committed that our student experience is one filled with academic engagement, community connections and personal growth. Our orientation program is designed to introduce students to Scripps—the values and expectations we set for students as individuals and ourselves as a community. The College takes pride in providing our students with a comprehensive orientation program that focuses on NSPO’s guiding principles—academics, community expectations, and connections among the class. We can’t wait to welcome you to Scripps!
We are excited to share the scheduled dates of our summer orientation program. This year we will be offering two opportunities for our newest members of the Scripps community to get connected. A complete schedule of sessions, workshops, and events will be provided in mid-June.
