After Ripon College
- Very Good166
You have many options and many oppurtunities at this school. Everyone, both professors and other students, are very kind, friendly, and welcoming on campus.

Ripon College as a whole cares about one thing, and that is profit. There are a few members of the staff that are caring and helpful but as a majority they are not. The school charges more than other private colleges and offers less. We no longer have free laundry or printing. And parking has always been expensive. In addition to that they do not offer many classes. Computer science and a large portion of the Math department have been cut, in my opinion that is unacceptable. Those classes are all very important and useful while less useful classes have been kept. You are not allowed to live off campus ever and that is because Ripon College wants your money. For what they charge for a double dorm room and a meal plan you could rent the nicest newest 2 bedroom apartment in the area and have money for groceries, I have looked into it. Overall I have regretted every minute of my two years here, and no I will not be returning.

A school can be boiled down to three main aspects: The students, the professors, and the resources of the college. Ripon excels at the first two, but the third can be lacking. This is the typical problem that small colleges run into. The student life is very close-knit. People know each other well, and it's a friendly campus. The professors care about their students. With class sizes at 40 or 50 people max (for 90% of classes the size is going to be below 20 people) students and professors can engage in productive lectures and class conversations.
