Scripps Presents is an electrifying mix of storytellers and artists, policymakers and musicians—and everything in between. Founded in 2016, audiences can partake in evening conversations and performances at Scripps’ Claremont campus and venues around Southern California; @Noon, featuring new writing and scholarship; and concerts under the Levitt on the Lawn banner. Many programs are now available virtually through the College’s Vimeo and YouTube channels.

Join Scripps College as we present eye-opening, mind-bending, genre-defying tête-à-têtes with the thinkers and doers, writers and performers, whose passions and perspectives are changing the way we see the world.
