Hello! It’s so nice to see you.
Those were the beautiful words heard dozens of times last week as Scripps students, faculty, and staff welcomed the Classes of 2024 and 2025 to campus for the first time!
It’s also an apt greeting to our wonderful Scripps Presents audiences who we haven’t seen since May.
This fall, we’ll be hosting a few different ways. Due to ongoing health considerations, much of our programming will remain virtual. That means you can join us for folks like the National Book Critics Circle Award-winning writer Cathy Park Hong; musician and novelist Josh Ritter; journalist and former “Code Switch” contributor Kat Chow (in conversation with KPCC’s Josie Huang); and critic and essayist Rebecca Solnit.
There will be a handful of in-person programs. Programs like Scripps alumna Elizabeth Turk ’83’s Look Up, among others.
The College requires all guests eligible to be vaccinated to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 (or proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 72 hours prior to the event date for those not eligible to be vaccinated) and attest to being symptom-free. Guests eighteen (18) years old or older will also be required to show a photo ID for verification. Children under 12 who are not vaccinated may be on campus if they wear masks and stay socially distanced by remaining with their household. Masks for all other attendees are recommended but not required for outdoor events.
We are so looking forward to hosting you!
