    Coming back to Scripps after being abroad for a semester and away for the summer, I really felt as if I were coming back home. I love living in the dorms, because I get the sense that I’m living with my best friends. I can walk to the dining hall alone, and 90% of the time I will just happen to find friends with whom to eat. Having the other campuses around for social events on the weekend is great, and I really enjoy the dance parties at Harvey Mudd and Pomona, but I also am glad to have the amazing women’s college environment at Scripps—a space where I can critically analyze institutions of privilege and power over tea… and then talk about the latest episode of Glee.

    There truly is no place quite like the Claremont Colleges. Yes, Scripps College is a women's college, but it is like no other. Scripps College is one of five undergraduate liberal arts colleges in the Claremont Consortium. Scripps student life blends together with each of the other college campuses: Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, Claremont McKenna, and Pomona. While you are nurtured and empowered at a small women's college, you simultaneously get the experience and resources that come with a large university.

    I love the small community where you really get to meet a lot of people (for example, I know almost all of the other women who posted here on Cappex to review Scripps!) within the larger consortium that offers a greater veil of privacy. My classes are challenging, engaging, and fascinating. I don't give Scripps a perfect five stars because I sometimes wish I knew more boys and occasionally feel like I don't come from enough money to participate in the dominant Claremont culture. There are, however, great extracurricular and work opportunities on campus that are ripe for the picking!

    The campus is gorgeous, the classes & professors are great, and the students are friendly. I'm not the best people person, and I've made plenty of friends. My group of friends here is actually larger than it was in high school. We may not be as close as I am with my friends from high school, but it's only 2 months into my freshman year.
