College Junior

Greek Life: I believe the Greek-Life is good at school. I don't care to join a sorority, but I know there are many people who do want to join Greek-Life and absolutely love it.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love being at Ripon. There are many great people on and off campus; I love the environment/atmosphere too! I talk about my experiences at Ripon all the time.

Athletics: I think our athletics are good. I don't know a whole lot about them because I am not on a varsity sport. I am on a club sport and unlike varsity sports we have to buy our own equipment and such.

College Junior

Guys & Girls: At Ripon there are many unique people. Everyone has their own style and everyone is accepting of each other (or at least that is what I get in my opinion).

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are like regular dorms. Tri and Johnson Halls are female dorms, except for one half of the first floor in Tri where some men live. Johnson Hall is where the sororities are along with some independents. Scott Hall is a coed dorm. I think it is separated into wings in which the genders live, but I don't know because I have not lived in Scott before. In the Quads I think all of the buildings are coed by floor, but most of them are men, so the fraternities are located in these dorms.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: On campus there is the Commons, a We Proudly Serve Starbucks station below the Commons; there is the Pub which is basically like a fast food restaurant; and then we have the Terrace which is kind of like the Commons, but they serve different food.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Ripon is the birth place of the republican party; it's in a small town; the town's atmosphere is very nice and the people on and off campus are friendly.

4 College Junior

Facilities: There are many things that are offered for students to do. There usually isn't a time when there is nothing going on.

College Junior

Transportation: I just have my parents or aunt pick me up because I don't have to worry about going long distance.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many small restaurants in Ripon, but there are also other ones in the surrounding areas too.

College Junior

Diversity: I'm not a political person so it doesn't pertain to me. I know Ripon is the birth place of the Republican Party so it might be more Republican than Democratic but I do not know.

College Junior

Weather: The weather doesn't really affect what you do because there are so many things you can do that doesn't matter what they weather is like.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know how to rate this because I will not be living off campus and the school is a residential campus so most students live on campus. If you choose to live off campus you have to petition for it and be accepted by the people you need to talk to for that.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Get your FAFSA done and turned in ASAP; it helps a lot.

Academics: The academics are good. There are a lot of things offered and if the school doesn't have a major that you like you can create your own.

4 College Junior

Academics: The academics are good. They have many options to choose from.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus, which is good because there are scary paths.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I think that there is plenty of diversity at the school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The rules seem to be followed, so there is not much of a problem.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There seems to be a lot of drinking, but it almost never seems to get out of hand.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It is a small town, but I like it. There is enough here that you don't have to make a big trip to go and get anything.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greeks are all pretty nice to other people and don't look down on non-Greeks.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Everything is within walking distance otherwise there is a cheap taxi.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: This is a residential campus and people are only supposed to live on campus.

Students Often Come From

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Overall, Ripon is "home" to so many students, and it certainly does feel that way. Ripon College is a community in itself. People know each other, and it's great because you either know everyone's name or at least their face. Campus is familiar, like a home would be. The people on campus (such as the faculty, staff, and other students) care about each other genuinely. Students meet their best friends here or their future spouses. Regardless, the relationships made at Ripon are ones that last. And it's not just the sense of community. The overall experience includes academics, and frankly, Ripon does it right. Ripon offers a small, personal learning environment that encourages discussion and critical thinking. It gets everyone involved in some way. The opportunities that are made available to Ripon's students are endless and abounding, and the awesome thing is, your professors encourage you every step of the way to grab those experiences and let them change you and help you grow. That's what Ripon is: a place to grow.

Ripon challenges students to try new things and put themselves in situations that will help prepare them for their future. The staff and faculty at Ripon do what they can to help students ready themselves for their professional careers and get students to step out of their comfort zones. They encourage all to greet the world beyond Ripon with a smile, tenacity, intuition, and fearlessness. Ripon is unique in these ways. Due to its size and personable qualities, the school allows for one-on-one relationships, and it is through these relationships that students gather gems of knowledge that help them prepare for life after Ripon College. It is this that puts Ripon above the rest.
