The Career Discovery Tour is a program committed to further expanding student-alumni career networking opportunities. In 2014, the program was recognized with the “Best Student Alumni Programming” award from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.
Offered twice annually, during fall and spring breaks, the Career Discovery Tour offers 12-16 students the opportunity to travel for a week to vibrant cities across the U.S. to gain first-hand knowledge of a variety of careers directly from successful Ripon alumni and friends.
Constituent Engagement and Career Services staff accompany students on the tour and help to design meeting schedules and flex time that meets the needs of most students. Previous trips have included Washington, D.C., Minneapolis, Chicago and Boston.
This critical engagement opportunity is made possible with support from the Alumni Association Board and others.
The next Career Discovery Tour is occurring in Fall 2016 in Chicago. If you are interested in hosting students at your workplace please fill out the form below.
