Ripon College’s orientation programs are designed to help new Red Hawks transition to our campus environment. Students will also learn strategies to cope with the changes they will experience.
Summer orientation will give you a jump-start on college life. It’s an excellent opportunity to meet your academic adviser, plan your first-semester classes, learn valuable information about resources at Ripon and meet other students.
