Finding meaningful opportunities to engage parents and families in the educational process is among our top priority. Parents and families are vital companions during their child’s journey toward independence. In addition to the events listed below, Ripon’s Office of Constituent Engagement provides a variety of parent and family leadership and volunteer opportunities.
Summer Orientation 2015 will be offered in three sessions — June 22-23, June 23-24 and June 24-25. Students should register for the session of their choice as early as possible, as the size of each session is limited to ensure we are able to provide the level of personal attention necessary. Parents and family members are invited to join their student for Orientation, and make choose to find lodging accommodations either on or off campus. If staying on campus, family members will be assigned together to the best of our ability. Learn more about Summer Orientation and register.
