Ripon College has been hard at work for its students since 1851. Like our founders, we continue to value the transformative power of education and believe that everyone (you included) deserves the best shot at a Life Well Lived®.
From day one, we encourage our students to embrace all of their interests and pursue all of their passions, no matter how varied they may be. If you’re looking for a school with enormous classes where professors (or their TAs) just read from a lectern, Ripon is not the school for you. When you come to Ripon, you’ll be engaged, you’ll meet your professors face-to-face and you will leave here stronger, smarter and very much ready for the world.
Whether you know exactly what you want to study in college or need more time to figure things out Ripon provides the combination of opportunities and experiences, dedicated attention and mentoring, networks and inspiration you need to reach success. We’re convinced you will find no greater advocate.
If you’ve made it this far, we encourage you to take the next steps toward discovering if Ripon is the right place for you. Visit our 250-acre tree-lined campus, where you can relax in one of our famous Adirondack chairs and take a stroll down Linley Lane, sit in on a class, and chat with current students or one of our awesome professors, coaches and directors. Meet with an admission counselor and learn about our generous scholarship and financial aid packages. Apply to take the first step toward living your own Ripon College journey.
