A solid foundation of information, experiences, and connections is the best way to ensure success in the first year of college. Summer Orientation is the time when new students and their supporters meet with academic advisors, plan out class schedules for fall semester, learn about all of the resources and supports provided by Ripon, and form bonds with members of the Class of 2024.

Rooms do not have private bathrooms or air conditioning. When registering guests for the program, you will need to select whether they intend to stay on campus for the program. Guests may also choose to stay at a local hotel. Check out area lodging options.
