Think you know what Greek life is all about? If you are envisioning Animal House you may need to think again. As a small community, Ripon is known for its personalized approach to helping students learn and develop as a person and professional. Greek life at Ripon College reflects these efforts.
Students participating in sororities and fraternities live in residence halls, not houses. They are leaders within the Greek community, as well as the greater campus. Greek students form bonds of unity and friendship, and serve as a family support system during your time on campus. They develop and serve in community service projects, including Girl Scouts of America (Kappa Delta), Fire Safety programs (Phi Delta Theta) and more.
Ripon College hosts three sororities, including Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Chi Omega and Kappa Delta. We also host five fraternities, including Phi Delta Theta, Phi Kappa Pi (Merriman), Sigma Chi, Theta Chi and Theta Sigma Tau (local co-ed fraternity).
Acceptance into any Greek Chapter is based on your own leadership skills as well as your ability to envision new opportunities and the benefits the organization can offer you. Whatever chapter you choose to belong to the benefits you receive are one in the same: lifelong bonds with chapter brothers or sisters (or both) who share similar aspirations, local and global connections for your future career, deep bonds with area charities through volunteer work and a host of opportunities to build your character and leadership skills.
