Favorites at Ripon College:

Season: Fall and spring. We are fortunate at Ripon to have many mature trees on campus providing a vibrant palate of colors during the fall. The bursting of the flowers/grasses in the prairie can sometimes be a nightmare for those affected by allergies. But I really enjoy the smells and sights.

Building: Bovay Fitness center holds a dear spot in my heart. During my senior year (2005) I worked closely with my friend and fellow alumnus Mike B. to develop an operation plan, facility usage, and layout for the facility. The fitness center was our senior project, and although the real world application wasn’t exactly as we had planned (as real work applications rarely are) I am very proud of tackling that space and helping provide a usable fitness center for the College Community over the past 8 years.

Campus Life: I was an RA for a year in Brockway and then the Student Assistant Hall Director in the Quads for my Junior and Senior years at Ripon. I also worked in Student activities managing our intramural sports for two years. I learned so much outside of academics in those roles and I can say that I have many great memories from that experience. Our campus community is supportive, expressive, challenging, and exciting. I’m incredibly thankful for my four years at Ripon College, the lessons I learned and the skills I honed. People at Ripon College are the Bee’s knees.
