Social Fit

Scripps College

Are you outdoorsy or do you need a bustling city?

Do you lean liberal or conservative?

How do you feel about snow?

Is Greek Life a “must have” or something to be avoided at all costs?

Are you looking for a diverse or international community?

How about the style of the residence halls?

These are all important factors in deciding where you want to live and study for the next four years. We’ll delve into all the options to determine which set of social factors is right for you, weighing tradeoffs to come up with your ideal college environment. We’ll then test it out by suggesting specific colleges for you to visit in person or research online, further narrowing down the key social and cultural attributes that will help you feel at home from the first day of your freshman year.
