What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
Professors are strict on completed work, but if you ask them questions, they will always help. If you need an extension on an assignment, most are flexible and will work with you.
Dylan from Ripon, WI
The academic setting at Ripon is non-competitive and professors are very open and friendly. One on one time isn't hard to come by. The freshman classes aren't overwhelming, especially because class sizes are kept small. There is a stringent academic honesty policy as well.
Emelia from Forest Lake, MN
The classes are challenging, but not impossible. Professors are approachable and encourage colaboration among students. It takes work, but it is entirely possible to get good grades here and learn important lessons in the process.
Kaitlyn from Twin Lakes, WI
Speaking particularly in terms of the science department, you definitely have to put in the time and effort to learn the material. Most of the tests are short answer, essay, or problem based, so you cannot skate by on multiple choice tests. Additionally, classes require significant lab time. During Undergrad, I spent a summer at a research internship at the University of Pennsylvania (an Ivy league school) and I was the only summer research student who did not attend an Ivy league University; however, I was definitely more prepared to write and critique science literature than the other students in my program.

The academic prospect of college is very important, but don't get overloaded. Allow some down time for your mind between papers and reports but make sure they are all done when needed.
