Preparing for Life After Scripps

There’s classroom learning and old-fashioned book learning. There’s learning that takes place in daily campus life, such as when students discuss an assignment over coffee at the Motley, or, have study sessions in their residence halls. And, increasingly, there’s online learning, such as class discussions or research on the Internet.

What we don’t hear as much about is the type of learning that takes place in the “real world”—spcecifically, through the many and varied internships available to Scripps students. Each summer, dozens of Scripps women apply for and receive grants for independent projects and specific projects within the College that earn them career-related experience. In the following page, we highlight a few of the internships Scripps students held, what the students learned, and how their summer jobs prepared them for life after Scripps.
