Scripps College

How many Scipps students does it take to change a light bulb?

16 – ten to set up an artistic team to select the most beautiful light bulb to match the campus, five to publicise the fact that girls can change bulbs just as well as boys, and one to screw it in.

What says...

Scripps sits relatively undiscovered in sunny California, like a hidden pearl waiting for the diver willing to take the plunge. An all-female liberal arts college founded on the highest principles of independent thinking and educational fulfillment, this is a tiny school with some of the luckiest students in the country. As part of the renowned Claremont Consortium, Scripps offer an open invitation to sample classes at four other great schools located minutes away. The educational experience is truly matchless.
