First-Generation @ Scripps Pre-Orientation
The First-Generation @ Scripps Pre-Orientation is designed to support the transition to college for students who are the first in their families to attend a four-year institution. The pre-orientation provides a range of sessions and workshops to position you to get the most out of your college experience including:
- Navigating academics
- Knowing your resources
- Communicating with faculty
- Working as a student and how to find a job
- Understanding your financial aid resources
- Getting involved at Scripps and The Claremont Colleges
- Meeting student leaders
- In-depth tour of Scripps College and campus resources
Most importantly, while the program is completely voluntary, it is a valuable opportunity to connect with other students and future mentors!
Pre-orientation will take place at Scripps College from Sunday, August 26 – Tuesday, August 28, 2018. Scripps will provide all participants with housing for three nights (Sunday – Tuesday) and all meals during the program at no cost. Students who attend the pre-orientation program will be responsible for their own transportation to campus on Sunday, August 26 by 12:00 p.m. The deadline to register is Monday, July 9, 2018.
All students who attend the First-Gen Pre-Orientation will go right into New Student Programs and Orientation (NSPO) for all new students on the morning of Wednesday, August 29, 2018.
