Nickname given by students of Harvey Mudd College, for a student of the all-female Scripps College across the street. Scrippsies hate to be called Scrippsies.

Scrippsie is also a number: it is half the point value needed for an extra game on a pinball machine. This value is called 'Scrippsie', because it denotes a decent score.
