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).

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: We have a great group of students here

1 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There is a scale that adds plus two to every girl, because there are so few pretty girls that if you don't add two to their scale you can't justify going out with them. Many guys have to lower their standards. The very few girls that are hot are extremely stuck up and usually only date football, baseball, or basketball players. So overall just a horrible college if you are looking for girls. If your looking for guys, lots of attractive single ones.

2 College Senior

Guys & Girls: As I have stated before, everyone has their cliques they stick with and dont usually wonder outside of them. The girls to guys ratio is about average but most girls here are either weird or not very good looking.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are mostly typical Wisconsin guys in girls. Although the on some occasions there are some beautiful people that appear on campus and are just amazing.You can find the type of person you want on this campus, but it will take some work.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There is a pretty even ratio of guys to girls on campus, with slightly more girls. Overall, the average student is pretty laid-back, attends class, does the assigned homework, and is involved in at least one club or organization of some sort. Students relate to each other pretty well and are generally accepting and understanding. Not everyone gets along all of the time, but nobody—or place—is perfect. There are some "cliques," but in classes and clubs, a lot of those dissolve, and students are able to work together as one without judgment.

There is plenty of dating, and there are dating opportunities for those interested. Students are friendly and easy to get along with, so it's easy to find people to hang out with and make friends. Ripon can't be classified as a huge hookup school, just because people have to be smart about their choices given that it is a small school. If something happens, most people on campus will hear about it. This doesn't mean hookups don't happen, because they do, but if Ripon had to be put on a spectrum of promiscuous to sexually reserved, it would lean slightly more toward the reserved side. But don't worry—there are plenty of cute guys and girls on campus!

Social Scene
The social scene at Ripon is limited to the residence halls. That being said, one of the most common things for students to do is chill in their rooms with some friends and watch movies, drink, and hang out, among other things. However, drinking does not have to and/or is not always involved! There are activities on campus that a fairly wide variety of students attend, so there is definitely mingling. The thing is that you have to be proactive, and go out and join clubs or organizations and attempt to meet people. They aren't necessarily going to come to you, but if you try, you won't have any problems!
Hookups or Relationships?
There are lots of couples in serious relationships with people on campus, but there are also lots of casual relationships, as well. There will always be the people who date someone for a little bit and then have a new fling a week later, and everybody says, "Wait, whaaat?" Yes, there are hookups, too (c'mon, it's college!), but the thing about Ripon is that it's so small that most people know about them or find out about them after they happen. So if it's someone that you'd be embarrassed to admit to-it's probably best to just say no or you might get a reputation.
Dress Code
The dress code overall is very casual, although a variety can be seen on campus. There are students who will go to class in pajama bottoms and others who hold a higher standard and always look classy. A normal outfit would probably be jeans and a T-shirt with a sweater or sweatshirt over top. Girls generally like to dress up in something a little bit nicer for parties, but again, you'll see people in all kinds of outfits. There are some days throughout the week in which different Greek groups will dress up in nice clothes.
