Scripps College Top Questions

What kind of person should not attend this school?


A person who is closed minded, introverted, passive and shy might have a hard time at Scripps College. Someone who wants access to a big city would not be happy at Scripps. Someone who prefers to not spend their time around many women would have a hard time.


Anyone who is disadvantaged or underrepresented in higher education (ie: economically disadvantaged, racially underrepresented or dis/differently abled).


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


Women who are not concerned with their future, or who are not interested in developing a strong personal identity.


If you're looking for a big school with the greek life and a football team and a big city to be in Scripps is not the place. Los Angeles is an hour away and the reality is you don't have a lot of time to get off campus. Also, if you're not serious about your studies, then this probably won't be the best fit.
