Scripps, founded in 1926, is a private, liberal arts college for women. It is one of the Claremont Colleges, a group of five undergraduate colleges and two graduate schools with adjoining campuses and shared facilities and services. Two features set Scripps College apart from other highly competitive liberal arts colleges: It is a women's college, and it emphasizes a challenging core curriculum based on interdisciplinary humanistic studies. The college's curriculum emphasizes the interrelationship and connection among the Fine Arts, Letters, Natural Sciences and the Social Sciences. Students are encouraged to examine and explore the links between past and present, ideas and objects, and people and culture. As one of the Claremont Colleges, Scripps offers students the benefits of a small women's college along with the facilities and resources of a medium-sized, coeducational university. Some of the new campus facilities include the W.M. Keck Joint Science Center, with state-of-the-art equipment and research facilities, and the Millard Sheets Art Center, with studios for painting, drawing, ceramics, and photography. In addition, there is a computer art and design laboratory, a printing press and a museum-quality gallery. Its 30-acre campus is located in Claremont, 35 miles east of Los Angeles.
