Kaitie Marshall ’14: Tour Guide and Overnight Hostess Coordinator

Kaitie Marshall is a senior majoring in Politics and International Relations, with a minor in Hispanic Studies. This past Spring she studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. There she studied Human Rights and learned about the country’s tumultuous political history by working in the archives of a monument to victims of state perpetuated violence. She also tried every type of empanada she could find. Despite having enjoyed her adventures, Kaitie is thrilled to return to Scripps.
In addition to her involvement with AAT, Kaitie is a manager for the on-campus organization Challah for Hunger. She is also a mentor to a local middle school student through the Claremont based charity Uncommon Good. In her spare time you can probably find her enjoying Yogurtland in the village, or taking a kickboxing class at the Tiernan Field House.

Admission Advisory Board:

The admission advisory board is a diverse committee of students advocating for the increased representation of first-generation, Black/African-American, and Chicana/Latina students in the admission process. We aim to strengthen class, racial, and ethnic inclusivity at Scripps and to highlight well-established resources for historically underrepresented students. The board will further the reach of the admission office by providing student input on issues surrounding campus climate on diversity and increasing the visibility and appeal of Scripps both locally and nationally.
