Female Economics Major C/O 2019
What are your favorite events that happen?
My favorite event is called the Pirate Party. It’s a party at the end of the spring semester during the day. They get food trucks, bouncy houses, live DJs, and water toys. They serve beer for people who are 21, and everything is free. I also like Halloween weekend. I think there’s a school-sponsored party at Pitzer, and it’s outdoors and super fun because everyone is dressed up.
What nights of the week do you regularly do things?
The school-sponsored events are usually on Friday or Saturday nights. People do go out on Thursday a lot, but those will be dorm parties. It’s very inclusive. All the school-sponsored parties check your ID if it’s at an enclosed area, but when it’s an open event anyone can go. The school also lets you register guests, so anyone can go in if they’re registered. The only time it gets exclusive is if there’s alcohol, and in that case, you have to get a 21+ wristband before the event starts.
How happy are you with the nightlife options at Scripps? Is there anything you would change if you could?
I’ve been pretty happy with it. I don’t particularly like going out a lot, so I think it’s a perfect balance for me. I think if someone really values going out, they could achieve that here, just maybe not at night clubs. Since L.A. is here, I do know a lot of people that are willing to make the trip out there for the nightclubs. The one thing I’d change is they should switch up their parties a little bit. This year there’s actually been a lot of variation and different types of music. A lot of clubs put on parties, like the Latino Student Affairs where they play music from Latin America. I think there’s something for everyone here.
