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.

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.

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.
