A guide to what college rankings don't tell you.

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]
