Picking oranges from the balcony off your dorm room

Set aside your preconceptions of residence halls. At Scripps, they feel more like home. Each hall features a spacious living room for socializing, a browsing room for quiet study, and a grand piano, since so many students play. Many rooms have splendid views onto the most picturesque areas of campus. Take a closer look at Residential Life at Scripps.

Drinking tea in a lush courtyard every Wednesday

Make new friends — or reconnect with your old ones — during a popular afternoon tradition every Wednesday. Scripps Tea is held in Seal Court, which features a bronze fountain of playful seals and mosaic murals created by students in the 1940s. This long-standing Scripps ritual is just one of many traditions we hold dear. Since 1931, Scripps women have been leaving their mark on the venerable Graffiti Wall, and gathering roses from the fragrant Rose Garden. Other cherished events include Candlelight Dinners and the Matriculation Ceremony and Dinner.
