5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never once felt unsafe on this campus. I don't know of anyone who has been assaulted (sexually or otherwise). Theft has been a problem some, but that is as bad as it ever is going to get.

4 College Student

Health & Safety: I have heard nothing but good things about the public safety on campus and I do not have any worries about being safe.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have security on campus that patrols during the evening hours. We also all signed up for RAVE alerts that get sent to our phone if something has happened. We can also call that number if we need help.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel that Ripon College is a very safe campus. Security vehicles drive around at night and RA's patrol the dorm buildings. Overall, I feel safe on campus, but I make an effort not to put myself in potentially dangerous situations.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel for the most part the Ripon Campus is very safe. The one thing we don't have are the little booths that people can go to to push a button to call security. We have a system where we have to call them, but if a student doesn't know that number it's not really going to help them.

I feel the crime rate is very low on campus. This can be seen by the fact that when we go to the dinning areas on campus the students' backpacks are left in the stairwell rather than have them all of the place in their dinning area next to them. Also, if you go into the library you can leave your things at the spot you are studying at and not have to worry about someone taking your things if you have to leave for a few minutes.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
