Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

An amazing place to learn and grow. With a beautiful setting, amazing weather and unbeatable academics, Scripps is one of the best colleges in the country. Although the fact that it is a women's college can be a detternt for many applicants, the availability of the Claremont College consortium gives students the best of all worlds!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

There are no perfect tips or fool proof advice that can be offered about finding the right college. The most important thing to consider and to investigate is whether or not students at the college are happy with their experience. During my college search process, I went by what the college guide books said; I never asked students quetsions and neglected to ask about how they liked their college and the experience that they had there. The best question to ask in helping to choose the right place is " How happy are the students?", " Do students LOVE their school?" With regards to making the most out of the college experience; use the four years to try things you wouldn't otherwise try. Use free time wisely; and most of all, take all your oppotunities to learn!

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The amazing weather, the unbeatable academics, the intelligence and academic dedication of the students and the availability and concern the faculty and staff have for the students.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure to visit campuses. Do research on the campus outside of the materials presented to you by the college. Don't choose a school based solely on prestige. Look for the amount of flexibility you will be able to have in your academic program and your ability to enhance your academic program in the surrounding area.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You should choose a school where you will be happy. Once you get there, get involved in anything and everything! Don't be afraid to try new things or take classes about things you have never heard about. This is a time for you to learn and grow. Take advantage of it!

Scripps is the perfect school for smart women who want to do everything.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The administration can be frustrating. I felt like there was not enough advice given by the school in general to math and science students.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit and talk to students. If the school will not pay for your flight to visit if you don't have the resources then don't bother- you don't want to deal with them.

What kind of person should attend this school?

visit the school. Feel the vibe for yourself.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Everyone is white and wealthy - no diversity. Financial Aid head of office is an asshole (seriously).

Scripps is breathtakingly beautiful. It is a wonderful place to wake up in the morning and return to at night. The students are very friendly and open to helping.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I believe that finding the "right" college is really difficult. It's not about academics, it's not about social life, it's not about campus life- it's about all of these. Take time and spend a few days at the school. If possible, do not go through program set up by the school. Rather, stay with a friend; go to a party; sit in on a class; eat a few meals at the dining hall when it's NOT prospective student time; ask students what they wish they knew before starting their education at the institution. Once you have chosen a school, do not be surprised that it's not a dream; every school has it's problems. Make the best of it, though! Get involved with campus organizations (they help you to form lasting friendships), visit professors during office hours (that's how you get research opportunities), get familiar with the area around campus (avoid cabin fever). Most of all, Have fun!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Scripps can be an alienating institution; the students are very elitist. People throw around buzz words without really thinking for themselves and regurgitate lectures to appear to be more intelligent. It becomes smothering. The campus is not very diverse, but people believe that they are expected to be. This leads to students taking classes about diversity and believing themselves to be experts in areas with which they are actually unfamiliar with.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

These smaller liberal arts schools (the Claremont Colleges) may not have the big name recognition among friends and family, but among employers and grad schools, these schools are very highly regarded. I transfered from a large public big-name school to one of these schools and couldn't be happier with the personal attention I'm getting.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants a big school with huge lecture halls and minimal interactions with professors and other students

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Dean Wood, who is a god-awful dean of students and an embarassment to the school

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

Typically, the other colleges on campus view Scripps' women as outspoken, intelligent and confident for the most part. There are also the stereotypes that burden every women's college. For example, we all must be lesbian which is not true but there are students of multiple sexual orientations who attend our school. There is also the stereotype that we are all huge feminist. I believe that every student's stance on feminism is different to some degree. We all are so different but have this desire to succeed which is the amazing aspect of the student body. The stereotypes don't even seem to fit after one encounters so many women from so many different backgrounds and cultures interacting together to make the campus environment nothing less than great.
