Scripps and men

Hi! I’m having trouble deciding whether to go for ED for Scripps mostly because of the whole women college situation. I know its part of the CCs but is it a strain to meet men on campus?
What are the classes like at Scripps?
The activities? Do you get to see men easily or is it a strain?
That’s pretty much my only concern with Scripps being a womens college
Otherwise, it has the majors I want to go into and amazing weather so :confused:

My D graduated from Scripps. There are young men everywhere. There are only a handful of classes or activities that are Scripps only. Anytime I’ve been on campus I’ve seen men walking through campuses, heading to classes, eating at the dining hall etc. You won’t have any problem meeting men. Not only will they be on the Scripps campus, it’s very likely you will be on any one (or all!) of the other campuses whether it’s taking classes, eating at their dining halls (my D ate at Mudd a lot), or for extracurricular activities.

My D was not looking specifically for a woman’s college. She just happened to come across the Claremont Colleges and really fell in love with Scripps in particular. She loved her time there.

@ClaremontMom thank you so much! I’m a lot more excited for Scripps!
If you dont mind me asking, what makes Scripps unique from the other four colleges in the consortium; what can Scripps offer that the other 4 colleges cant? What’s special about Scripps other than it being a womens school, good weather, beautiful campus, etc. I can’t afford to visit so I figured it’d be best to ask anyone who has gone there :slight_smile:

Each of the five Claremont schools has a unique focus – for Scripps it is that it is a woman’s college. While there are men on campus (as we already mentioned) it still manages to keep it’s woman’s college focus as well.

As for what make’s it special in general. There are lots of things. I think the small college, small class sizes the personal relationships with professors make it a very special place. My D was a STEM major and she found the STEM professors very supportive of her. They were always excited for their students to try new things and they were always available for tutoring or just for advice. She was always talking about her professors, I felt like I knew them personally.

Of her non-STEM classes, she speaks of how the writing and presenting she did there really prepared her for the “real world”.

She also says that despite the small size she feels the networking is really good. It was certainly helpful for her in finding her summer research project and later her job and she’s returning the favor to others at Scripps.
