We are excited that you have decided to make Scripps College your home away from home.  New Student Programs and Orientation (NSPO) is designed to prepare you for your Scripps journey, acclimating you to campus resources, creating opportunities for engagement and building a greater sense of connectedness to one another and the greater Scripps community. This year we have created two orientation experiences – virtual and onsite, for first- and second- year students.

Our virtual orientation for first-years will take place August 15-20, 2021. Our virtual orientation for second-years will take place August 17-29, 2021; click the links below for a quick overview of the schedule. We will provide a more detailed and interactive schedule, via Guidebook, the week of July 19.  Onsite orientation will begin on August 25 for first-years and August 26 for second-years, concluding on August 28.  The start of onsite orientation coincides with your respective move-in day.  More details about move-in will be provided in your housing notification, which will be sent on July 20
