4 College Freshman

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

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: It's easy to find help if you need it, but being so small there isn't much risk of anything happening.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Ripon is a very safe community. There is what is called "The Ripon Bubble". The explanation is nothing bad happens in Ripon. Security does not crack down on drinking as long as you are not being belligerent. The police are only the really ones who really crack down. Health services are awesome and free!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Very comfortable being on campus, not really anything to worry about.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The crime rate on campus is usually pretty low. Safety is pretty high. I don't usually feel as though something bad is going to happen to me, but as always you still want to be alert.

Ripon, as a whole, is a very safe place to live. It is a small town and community, and people watch out for each other. Most places close around 9 or 10 p.m., so the small amount of traffic gets reduced. It's safe to walk alone, and everything is nearby. Campus security is present and proactive. They have a phone number where they can be reached, and they will pick up students and give them rides back to their residence halls. They also do walk-throughs of all the residence halls a few times each night and are always available to investigate any situation or complaint. They are very friendly and willing to help. Although theft on campus isn't a huge problem, students should still be smart. Lock your room and any valuables you have because it pays to be safe. Don't assume that just because you know most of campus that your things are automatically safe. It is very likely that you won't encounter any problems during your time at Ripon College, but why take a risk when it can be easily prevented?

There is a campus nurse who can examine students for basic illnesses and colds, and prescribe antibiotics. Also on campus are two counselors who are available for students to meet with on a regular basis, a few times, or one time only. They encourage students to stop by for any reason at all—their doors are always open. All of the health and counseling services staff members are friendly and helpful.
