Most Helpful Review for Ripon College
  • Category: Am learning a lot
  • Review by: Mariah from Mc Farland, WI

I just finished my first year at Ripon College, and am still in the midst of many introductory courses, but I am learning a lot. As a helpful hint to all future students, Ripon does not require its students to take a course in mathematics. However, if you do choose to take these courses (especially Calculus I and II like I did) be wary. They are difficult, and what math isn't, but if you maintain a good work ethic you learn more than you would think possible. In all, the majority of the classes are interesting and informative.

    I graduated 1.5 years ago, I was accepted to Medical School (MD) right out of college, but as a back-up, I had applied to jobs during my senior year and received 2 high paying offers (greater than 55k plus benefits) within 2 weeks. Ripon really prepared me for Medical School and the job market. What really makes Ripon stand out is in connecting students with opportunities to build ones resume in college so they become excellent applicants for post-grad education and in the job market.

    a small liberal arts school with a small minority population. in proportion to the size and location there are a lot of things you can do for fun in and out of campus. ripon allows for a strong connection with other students and professors, creating a thriving learning enviroonment for those who prefer to actively participate.

    Ripon College has given me so many unique opportunities that only a small, liberal arts college can offer. The professors and staff make it a priority that each individual student is doing their best work, both in and out of the classroom. The professors truly want to give students opportunities outside of the classroom with internships, jobs, community services, and research projects.

    The application and search process ended up being a very nice and personal experience. I received a postcard from a tour guide after a campus visit, and the director of admissions wrote a congratulatory note on the bottom of my acceptance letter. Decisions are made very quickly.

    I love the way Ripon has treated me throughout the college search process. They really know how to make you feel like one of them even before you have made your final decision. They really make you feel like you count, like you matter to them.

    Ripon College is most notable for its rigorous academic program and its friendly student body and staff. I decided to come to Ripon, despite the weather change, because I felt like I could fit in well. The number of students here is small, but the students themselves are so diverse that anyone is bound to find a group of people they can relate to!
