Publicity/Publications Requests

There are countless events on the Ripon College campus each year and many great stories to tell. However, since any external mass communication that originates from a College-sponsored group is an “official” Ripon College communication in the eyes of the recipient(s), certain standards must be followed. The Office of Marketing and Communication is responsible for maintaining these standards.

Before filling out the Office of Marketing and Communications request form for PR, web, publications or marketing requests, please review the lead times for projects below.
