What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I had an opportunity to communicate to myself as a senior, I would say that I need to participate as much as possible and make sure that I get involved in activities and the community. I would be sure to tell me to get to know as much people as possible, to find friends with similar and different interests and opinions than myself and to not be afraid of just being myself. I would also tell myself that education is the reason that I am going to college, so I need to study, study, study! I would take this opportunity to remind myself to practice my spanish vocabulary and tenses because I will need a good review for the future! Spanish will be a hard course, work on your pronounciation and get extra help if you need it. This is the same for all of your future courses, take advantage of tutoring opportunities. Also, don't let anyone decide what your major is going to be for you. You will not be happy with a business major so don't get forced into accounting because it is a difficult class and it will end up bringing down your GPA.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best way to find the right college is to be sure to visit and make sure you sit in on classes. A campus may look beautiful, but it's the people that you want to make sure you connect and fit in with. When you find the right college, you will know because it just feels right. Once you get to college, don't spend time trying to fit it. Colleges are diverse and just by being you, you will find a group to fit in with. Make sure to ask your professors questions. They are there to help and it really shows that you care.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Ripon is best known for its involvement with the community, the percentage of students who study abroad and the percentage of students who are involved in intramural sports.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best advice I can give is to go into college with an open mind and be who you want to be when you get there. Make friends and don't be afraid to go outside of your comfort zone at times because the benefits will outweigh the nervousness or uneasiness you feel at first. Get involved in activities but make sure you put the necessary time and effort into your homework and study time in order to get the best grades possible. Also, don't be afraid to ask for help because there are plenty of willing people which will make your overall experiance better and more enjoyable. But more than anything else, have a good time and live your life because once you graduate you will be in the real world and everything will suddenly become more serious, just don't overdo it and make sure you keep a mature, accurate perspective on all aspects of your life.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit as many schools that you can, whether you are interested in them or not. You will never know what truly fits you if you do not visit. Also plan an over night trip to get a true experience away from the parents. Don't focus too heavily on all the "drinking" concerns, college students are the same all across the nation, the kids will drink and no one will ever be able to stop it. Also, explore all financial options to make even the more expensive schools a possibility. Don't expect your child to come home every weekend. Encourage them to stay on campus, otherwise they will be cheating themselves out of having a true college experience. Enjoy it while it lasts.

What's unique about your campus?

The people here make Ripon College. From the students, faculity and staff, everyone here makes Ripon a desirable place to attend college. The relatively small size and easy access to surrounding cities is also a benificial factor.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To a parent: Do not try to keep your child to close to home. To a student: don't try to get to far away from home. Both should keep an open mind look for something that seems 'you.' After one tours the college if they like the college the tour guide and the size then they should consider the college. One need not look for something entirely different when going to college, because living away from school and college itself is a different experience. This will become four years of ones education that will shape their future, there is no need to make any irrashional decisions.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about Ripon College would have to be the students on the weekends. Located in a small town Ripon is a safe place but students on the weekends act rude and unethical, damaging school property under the influence of alchohol. The school eats these costs, making the cost more, the worst thing at Ripon.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating accurance at Ripon College is for those who have problems with their roommate. Although it is more feared then common, the staff that deals with this situation is one of the few that does not care about the individual or the situation. Those incharge of the situation can make and individual feel they are an inconvenience; exactly what someone in a frustrating roommate situation does not need to feel.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

In finding the right college: go visit. If it is the right place for you, you will know imediately. Once you get to college, don't be afraid to try anything. In fact, try everything. It is the only chance you will get. Appreciate every opportunity you are presented with and take advantage of.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I was very well educated on the school I chose before I arrived. I already knew some of the faculty and students to help ease my transition.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Professors don't typically cancel class if there is a blizzard outside because they all live close enough to campus to be able to make it to and from class themselves. This is unfortunate for students because it is a pedestrian campus and we have to walk sometimes a fair distance between our dorms and classes.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Our school is best known for being a liberal arts school meaning that each student that attends Ripon College will get to experience different fields they would not have chosen as a class without the schools requirements and therefore miss out on other opportunities.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To check out as many colleges as possible to help make the decision easier for you and your parents. Also to not lose focus on academics because of worries about the social aspects of college. It is easy to make friends on any campus if you keep an open mind.
