Sixth Annual Scripps Day

Scripps Day

06/14/2013 (All day)

Drop in to Celebrate Another Great Year at Scripps!

Grab your Hawaiian shirts and join your Scripps Institution of Oceanography friends to celebrate another great year at Scripps!

Our outstanding scientists, students, alumni, and staff are invited to hang (ten) with old friends and new ones to commemorate Scripps's achievements of the past year. Central to this event will be announcement of graduating students, recognition of honors received by members of the Scripps community, open houses across campus, and an alumni keynote address.

This is an opportunity for all of Scripps to come together for a day of fun and camaraderie in our own beautiful backyard, and thank you for all you do to keep Scripps thriving.
