3 College Freshman

Administration: No real complaints, just with the drinking

4 College Freshman

Administration: Since the school is such a small one, the administration is able to work on a more personal level with students than at larger schools. This helps result in a very rational administrative staff at Ripon. If you act like a civilized individual and go to class, you will have no problems with the administration.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Campus security walks and drives the campus all hours of the night. If you need a ride because you do not feel safe or the weather outside is just to bad, campus security is always willing to pick you up and drive you to where you need to be. Each and every one of the campus security individuals start get conversations and make you feel safe.

Administration: Sexual assault is far to common and they are not willing to fix the issue.

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: While the campus alcohol policy seems strict, it's poorly enforced. Yeah, security comes around Brockway periodically when it gets loud, but as long as people are in a room with the door closed they're pretty much in the clear.

As someone who never really got into academic trouble, it's hard for me to judge their academic policies. They seem pretty fair though-- you'll get a warning mid-semester if you're getting a D or F in a class. If you're caught plagiarizing you get kicked out.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is quite a bit of underage drinking, but RAs, hall directors, and campus security make sure that things stay safe. The police do not really come on campus unless they are called. If students are smart, they can have a fun time without getting caught, but it's often best to play by the rules and be smart about your choices. Overall, people would say that campus is not that strict, although when it comes to things like grades and plagiarism, the administration really cracks down and takes those situations seriously.

As for attendance, it depends somewhat on the professor. Most will take attendance and calculate it into your grade. Others say you can do what you want and are responsible for making up what you miss and staying on top of things. Still, some professors are very strict and do not tolerate tardiness. Plus, classes are small enough that professors know when you aren't there, whether they take attendance or not. And, if you do choose to skip class, look out because it isn't uncommon to bump into your professor later that day, which can lead to awkward conversations.

Facts & Statistics

Students Are Most Likely to Get Caught...
  • Cheating on tests or homework
  • Drinking underage
  • Playing loud music or noise violations
Visitation Policies
Students are allowed to have visitors in the residence halls at any time, but they are responsible for that visitor and anything that visitor does. There are some rooms that remain empty and are available for parents or guests to rent at a cheap rate if they do not want to get a hotel room. If one student is visiting another residence hall after hours, the visiting student must be let in because keycards do not work for any building but your own after quiet hours.
