2018 Ignite Program
Ignite, available for a select number of students in the entering class, is an academic immersion program held on the Ripon College campus August 7-24, 2018. This free program is designed to provide incoming students the academic tools they’ll need to succeed during their four years as a student and member of the Ripon College community. Through Ignite students will take their first steps toward completing their degrees at Ripon College and the Catalyst program, such as building important relationships with faculty, staff and fellow peers. Ignite students will take their first college seminar as part of this unique program, earning three credits toward the 124 credits required for graduation. Participants will delve into learning topics like writing, collaboration, engagement, leadership and more. A variety of fun sessions and activities, and field trips are planned to take advantage of Ripon’s peak summer weather. Students participating in Ignite receive an $800 Ignite Award toward books and/or your student account for your first academic year (2018-2019) at Ripon College. The program, meals, housing, resources and two off-campus field trips are provided free of charge. You must be a deposited member of the Class of 2022 to register. Watch for an email from your Admission Counselor with details on how to register.
