Welcome to Scripps College!
Please allow me to be among the first of many to say welcome to Scripps College! You soon will become part of an extraordinary college and a member of an incredible group of students.
My name is Samuel C. Haynes; please call me Sam. I am an Associate Dean of Students, Director of Student Activities and Interim Director of Residential Life. One of my favorite responsibilities includes overseeing the Scripps College Transfer Student Orientation program. I along with a team of faculty, students and professional staff are preparing for your arrival; our wish is to make your transition to Scripps as easy as possible. We recognize the transition to a new college can be a challenge, and you are no doubt filled with all kinds of feelings right about now. I hope one of those feelings is excitement, because you are about to embark upon a possible life changing experience. During the course of the next few months and years, you will meet and become friends with outstanding professors and stimulating students from all over the world.
Upon arriving at Scripps, I encourage you to invest some time in learning about the college community. You will have the opportunity to take advantage of the leadership positions at Scripps and at the other Claremont Colleges. I suggest you take some time over the holiday season to think about how you might create your own student life. Once you arrive on campus, I and/or a member of the Student Activities office staff will be happy to assist you in meeting other students with interests like your own and/or help you start a club or organization to your liking.
Attached is a copy of the Spring 2015 Transfer Student Orientation schedule, please review it and prepare yourself for an great time with other transfer students and your new friends here at Scripps. If you have any question and/or concerns, about the schedule please ask me by email or you may call me at (909) 607-4307 starting January 5, 2015. My office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm. If you have a desire to talk with some current Scripps students, I invite you to reach out to two Scripps student leaders whose purpose is to help welcome you to our community and answer any questions you may have “student to student.” The two student’s names are: Rebekah Manikowski and Felicia Agrelius, they are the New Student Program (NSP) Coordinators. You will meet “Bekah” and Felicia during Transfer Student Orientation; however until then, feel free to ask them any question you may have. I will check in with you early next week and forward you important forms and provide you information about important documents you may send ahead and/or bring with you when you arrive on campus. I wish you, your family and friends the best this holiday season. I am excited to meet you and I look forward to seeing you on January 17, 2015 for Transfer Student Orientation. Cheers to great beginnings this spring at Scripps College!
