Reasons to attend and to not attend Scripps College

To Attend

  • “If you want a true liberal arts education that’s full of humanities, writing, and forces you to think outside of what you might not be comfortable with.”
  • “You meet people who are really passionate about what they’re learning about. They’re not people who are getting a college education because that’s the next thing to do, it’s people who really care about what they’re learning.”
  • “There are so many perks in the consortium, such as the resources, classes, and social opportunities. It’s cool having your smaller school and the resources that are dedicated to you, along with your smaller social circles, but it’s also nice having the wider availability of the consortium.”
  • “The small class sizes are very helpful because the professors are way more accessible.”

To Not Attend

  • “If you don’t want a small school that feels like a bubble.”
  • “Sometimes it’s weird how wealthy some people are. There are multiple Teslas registered with parking permits, so depending on how you feel about that, it can be a lot sometimes.”
  • “It’s a very White school with people predominantly in the upper-class, which is frustrating. All my friends have their parent’s credit card and go out to dinner all the time, and that’s just not something I can do. A lot of times they don’t get that I can’t go, but I also have some friends that do.” [43% of the undergraduate population are students of color, and 5% are international Socioeconomically, 37% of the student body comes from the top 5%.]
  • “We don’t have amazing mental health resource access.” [See The Student Life article, “5C Students Question Quality of Mental Health Resources.]
