Each year in June, hundreds of Ripon alumni and guests make their way back to campus to celebrate Alumni Weekend with friends old and new. Mark your calendars for Alumni Weekend 2015, June 25-28.
More than 650 alumni and guests attended Alumni Weekend in June 2014, representing 34 states and Canada. The annual packed schedule of events included walking tours and open houses across campus, walking tours of the serene Cereso Prairie Conservancy with Professor of Biology George “Skip” Wittler, a 5K Fun Run/Walk, a session for nostalgic memories and one for remembering those who have passed on, friendly active competitions, and the All-Alumni March, leading to President Zach Messitte’s address about the state of the College.
The popular Red Hawks Golf Scramble not only is a great time, but also raises funds to benefit athletic programs at Ripon College.
Some of our finest are honored during a dinner with a Distinguished Alumni Citation, Outstanding Young Alumni Award or induction into the Athletic Hall of Fame.
There is plenty of opportunity all weekend for reminiscing, socializing and just having fun.
