    1. It is okay (actually better) to take different kinds of classes before deciding on a major. I took Intro to Legal Studies during my second semester of freshman year and loved it! Now I'm dual-majoring in Economics and Legal studies. 2. Visit all different kinds of colleges. Scripps is a wonderful school, but it is not the school for everyone. Come visit our campus and schedule an interview if possible. Remember, college admission is a mutually-selective process. 3. Join clubs and attend on-campus events! There's always something for everyone at Scripps and the 5Cs, such as Salsa night, speed-dating mixer, movie night, karaoke night, beach volleyball tournament, and CMS (Claremont-Mudd-Scripps) vs PP (Pomona-Pitzer) sports games.

    Come tour the college! I know for many students coming out to California can be difficult, but the best way to get a sense of a college is by being on the campus. Scripps is a very beautiful place, that you'll be hard pressed not to fall in love with.

    The Consortium has a huge impact on your academic and social experience; embrace the larger 5C community. There is nothing else that can compare in the American educational system. Each of the five schools has such a unique identity, and to have them literally across the street from one another means that Claremont College students have access to a huge pool of resources. That being said, Scripps is very proud of its all-women identity and feminist history. Take the time to explore what being at a women's college, surrounded by four co-ed colleges, is like.
