First-Generation @ Scripps Pre-Orientation
The First-Generation @ Scripps Pre-Orientation is designed to support the transition from high school to college for students who are the first in their families to attend a four-year institution in the United States. The pre-orientation provides a range of sessions and workshops to position you to get the most out of your college experience including, but not limited to:
- Knowing your resources
- Navigating academics
- Communicating with faculty
- How to find a job and working as a student
- Understanding your financial aid resources
- Getting involved at Scripps and The Claremont Colleges
- Meeting student leaders
- Building community
- 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 faculty, staff, other students and future mentors!
Pre-orientation will take place at Scripps College from Saturday, August 24-Monday, August 26, 2019. Scripps will provide all participants with housing for three nights (Friday-Sunday) 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 Friday, August 23 and should arrive no later than 3:00pm to move-in and prepare for an evening social. The deadline to register is Friday, July 12, 2019.
