“Scripps gave me the critical skills and the breath of knowledge needed to enter the work world with confidence and excitement. The passionate professors, fascinating course topics and art related organizations such as the Student Art Society made my Scripps experience incredibly inspirational. The beauty of the Scripps Campus, together with the dynamic education I received there, will stay with me forever.”
