About Us

About Us

The Scripps Voice (TSV) is Scripps College’s print and online student newspaper that serves as a forum for news and opinions at the Claremont Colleges (5Cs). Since 1990, our reporting has provided the wider 5C community with relevant information on important events and issues on campus. We hope to use this platform as an opportunity to engage in intersectional feminist discourse that can be found at a Historically Women’s College in the 21st century.

Any and all 5C students and faculty are encouraged to write for us, although managerial and editorial positions are reserved for Scripps students.

Our Motto

“Uncompromising commitment to inclusivity and justice.”

Mission Statement

The Scripps Voice hopes to continue the tradition of outspoken feminist journalism that our school’s namesake was notorious for, while adjusting our feminist lens for a newer, more intersectional era.

More than a paper promoting neutrality and objectivity, we want to be a platform for radical voices, creative perspectives, marginalized identities, and uncompromising activism. Student journalism is crucial in today’s social and political climate and we want to be leading the movement towards truth and justice.

About Our Namesake

Scripps College’s founder and namesake, Ellen Browning Scripps, was herself a journalist during the 1860s and 1870s. Ellen Browning Scripps wrote for The Detroit Tribune and The Detroit Evening News in college and after graduating, and her daily columns ranged from news snippets to suffragette appeals. Her radical feminist lens made her a prominent female icon in the journalism industry and beyond.
