Scripps College

Claremont, CA

Scripps College says, "The objective of a fine liberal education is the acquisition of skills and knowledge instrumental to one's intellectual and emotional fulfillment and to success in whatever career one chooses. A liberal education does not teach professional or vocational knowledge so much as a comprehensive, connected understanding that can guide the use of such knowledge. Scripps College develops skills—analytical, quantitative, and verbal—that are critical to any endeavor and encourages opportunities for artistic expression and aesthetic response." [Source]
