After shuttering its doors in March 2020 at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, students were finally in for a treat when the beloved Motley to the View Coffeehouse —more commonly and affectionately known as “the Motley”—reopened in April. For more than 45 years, the Motley Coffeehouse has provided a welcoming space for members of The Claremont Colleges community to study, socialize, and host events. Often considered the heart of the Scripps campus, the Motley is managed and operated entirely by Scripps students, providing its staff with invaluable leadership and business experience. The Motley employs approximately 60 baristas and managers each semester.
