Changes in Weekend Pool Hours and Access at Tiernan Field House

Posted: February 1, 2013

The Tiernan Field House, in consultation with SAS and our joint athletic/recreation partners Claremont McKenna and Harvey Mudd, has reviewed the Scripps pool program.  The review was prompted by suggestions, comments, and concerns received from students and the results of the November 2012 survey conducted on the atmosphere at the pool.

Survey Results

  • 45% of respondents indicated that Coed Open Hours were somewhat important
  • 87% of respondents indicated a preference for implementing Women Only Hours
  • 73% indicated a preference for implementing Scripps Only Hours

56% of Scripps students identified the weekends (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays) as their top choice for the days and 12:00-3:00 pm as the most convenient times to participate.

Taking into consideration the feedback from the Scripps College student community while also supporting our joint partnership with Claremont McKenna and Harvey Mudd, we are implementing a combination of Scripps undergraduate student, Women Only, and Coed hours at the Scripps Pool for the spring semester 2013.

Starting Friday, February 1, the new Scripps pool1 hours on weekends (Friday-Sunday) are:

Scripps Undergraduate Students Only – no guests

Friday, Saturday, Sunday 12:00pm-2:00pm

Women Only – guests allowed

Friday, Saturday, Sunday 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Coed – guests allowed

Friday, Saturday, Sunday – 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

The Tiernan Field House, SAS, and Dean’s of Scripps, Claremont McKenna, and Harvey Mudd ask for your support and cooperation with this change. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Tamsen Burke, Director of the Tiernan Field House, or Scripps College dean Rebecca Lee, Harvey Mudd College dean Chris Sundberg, and Claremont McKenna College dean Mary Spellman.
