Around the Pier: A Legendary Scripps Day


Scripps Institution of Oceanography students, scientists, staff, alumni, friends and family spent a full day celebrating all things Scripps at the fifth annual Scripps Day, June 15, 2012. The annual event commemorates achievements of the past year, a commencement for graduating students, recognition of honors received by members of the Scripps community, and open houses across campus.

This year Scripps alumnus Rick Grigg, legendary surfer and emeritus professor of oceanography at University of Hawaii at Manoa, delivered the keynote address to graduating Students. “Keep true to the dreams of your youth,” was his advice to the future science leaders hoping to follow in his footsteps.
