Career Discovery Tour
Ripon College is excited to announce a new career development initiative, the Career Discovery Tour, to further expand student-alumni career networking opportunities. President Messitte and the Alumni Board of Directors are passionate about offering new and exciting opportunities for current students to gain first-hand knowledge of a variety of careers and cities directly from Ripon alumni.
With special funding from the Alumni Board and others, this fall, the Career Discovery Tour will take students to Washington D.C. to visit the workplaces of alumni and friends of the college.
Among the site hosts students will visit are: Susan Bundock ’82, C-SPAN Producer Jim Laufenburg ’79, Executive Director, US Army Distaff/Knollwood (Retired Chief of Staff, 101st Airborne, US Army) Susan Meier ’79 Principal/Owner, Meier & Associates Pam Durham ’83 Director of the Office of Missile Biological, and Chemical Nonproliferation: U.S. Department of State Senate Intelligence Committee Senator Ron Johnson’s Office
Cost Thanks to funding from the Alumni Board and the President’s Fund for Career Development, the cost to participating students for transportation, hotels, and most meals is significantly defrayed and will be only $300. Additional support for students with demonstrated financial need may also be available. Students will need to provide their own spending money for souvenirs, snacks, or other assorted items.
Availability There are 10 to 12 spots available for the trip.
Transportation Travel will be coordinated and details will be available soon.
