Pitzer College is the most “artsy” campus with many cartoon panels/vignettes painted on the walls. The huge “Dali-style” mural on the outside of the dining hall is impressive. There is an arboretum on the far side of campus by the tennis courts and even an interesting small cactus garden. Scripps College is located in the center, surrounded by Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, Claremont McKenna and the graduate university.
Scripps boasts a beautiful court- yard surrounded by the dance studio, art museum and theatre arts center lending a cultural feeling to this campus. The dorms are furnished with antiques and rugs. All dorms are living-and-learning units, so that classes are held entirely in the same building where students live. Harvey Mudd takes up a narrow rectangular area on the northern perimeter of the Claremont campuses.
The residence halls are located at one end of Mudd campus and students skateboard down to the dining hall and library at the other end. The campus was founded in the 50s as a response to the Russian space threat. The Math and Science building has underground classes and lecture halls as a result. It has become a common meeting place for students.
