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

The college you attend will affect the next four years of your life. Take the decision seriously. College is not just about academics, it's about learning who you are and growing into the person you want to be for the rest of your life... so choose carefully. There are so many important parts to college that go beyond just attending class and many times the most influencial experiences are not found in a classroom. Look at every aspect of the college before you chose one including the campus, classes, food, activities, opportunites, clubs, faculty, other students, college size, and anything else you think is important. Do everything you can while at college. College is such a unique experience that can never be recreated after you graduate. Discover new friends while attending and they will become some of the most important people in your life. Don't regret anything that you do, but enjoy every moment of your time because you will miss it when it's over. Finally be flexible - don't go into college with all four years planned out because the journey is the best part and these memories will be a part of you forever.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who need to be around a city with lots of stuff happening around them. Ripon has lots of campus events but the surround community is small and mostly farmland outside the town. Ripon is full of a variety of students though; sports, thespians, greeks, indies, musicians, gamers, studious, and many more so as long as a person can survive in a small town atmosphere there is still always something going on and people to do it with.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Doing stuff off campus was hard because you need a car to go anywhere and transportation by the college was limited and even driving a car to the nearest cities could get costly. I have also recently graduated and I am not very impressed with the career developement office, I feel that al least for me there hasn't been much they have helped me with for actually looking for a job. Although they are helpful with resumes and applications and the like.

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

If you plan on doing anything related to the arts, remember that this is a liberal arts college, the music program here is ok at best. While the professors are knowledgable, there are huge problems with the students in each of the performing organizations, and there are plenty of things that I would like to change.

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

I wish I would have known what kind of things I would not be able to do on campus in my department as opposed to what I can do.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who wants any kind of big city interaction.

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

I would suggest they talk to current students other than those who are giving the tours or that the college has assigned to talk to prospective students. Oftentimes you will only hear the responses the college wants you to hear. If possible, I would highly suggest talking to more than one current student who is not employed by the college.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who want a large college. There is plenty of little partys on weekends, but that's about it

Find the college that makes you feel like your at home. It exisits, believe me. Dont stay to close to home. College is about new experiances, and if you go home every weekend- you are just staying in your comfort zone.

Well Rounded People who want to be involved and use and experiance their education.

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

Make sure you attend many campus visits. Most students will know when they found the right college. Talk with many people on campus(students, faculty, staff). you might make a few freinds even before you sart your first semester. Make sure to check out the previous years activity lists. though it does change every year, see if something really stands out (who knows, you could possibly be a part in the activity planning.

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

Sometimes the food in the commons is less than exceptional.

What kind of person should attend this school?

To attend this school people should be very open minded. It is small, and just about everyone knows you or knows of you. It is really easy to meet people on campus so just be yourself, you will find a place you feel comfortable. Have fun, college is a place to learn and grow academically and socially.

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

Visit the campus and meet with a variety of people. Some schools look excellent on paper but the campus just does not fit. I know that I walked onto one campus and after twenty minutes knew I would never be comforable there. Arranged campus days are a great way to initially see a campus and get a feel for the place. However, sometimes it is when you visit a second time by yourself when you can see the true heart of a campus. Do people actively greet a tour guide? Do students walk as if they are proud to be on campus? It is important to meet as many people as you can. Everyone has a different opinion and it is only by sifting through all of them that a good picture can be drawn of a school. And if you do not know what you are looking for in a school, comparison shopping is always good. It may even come down to how comfortable the chairs are in the library! The small and insignificant can sometimes make the largest impact on the college experience.

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

There is more alcohol consumption than I was expecting but it is easy to avoid if I so desire and no one pressures me to drink. The additude of the students is much more casual about drinking than I was used to at home.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Ripon is a solid liberal arts college and it is easy to take a variety of classes upon entrance if one does not know what major they would like to complete.

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

The most important thing is to keep in mind that college is an individual experience for everyone... in order to find the right college, you need to look not only at where it is located and what kinds of courses and academic programs are offered, but also at the campus culture. I found a school that accepted me for my unique needs and cared for who I was, because I looked beyond the surface of what majors were available and what the campus was like, and focused on finding a school with a community that met my needs. Students seeking a college that fits their needs need to do the same thing - find a school where you'll be able to pursue your passions and live college life to the fullest. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I've made the most of it, and you should too.

What kind of person should attend this school?

People who are willing to adapt to a small school environment, but who are seeking a place where people of diverse opinions can be accepted if they are willing to work hard at it.

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

VISIT THE SCHOOLS ALOT TALK TO THE PROFESSORS ALONG WITH STUDENTS. SIT IN CLASSES SO YOU CAN GET A FEEL OF WHAT COLLEGE IS ABOUT. YOU HAVE TO SPEND ALOT OF YEARS, THERE NOT YOUR PARENTS , NOT YOUR FRIENDS. YOU NEED TO FEEL COMFORTABLE YOU NEED TO FEEL LIKE YOU BELONG THERE. THIS WILL BE YOUR HOME FOR AT LEAST FOUR YEARS. YOU SHOULD NEVER PICK THE SCHOOL BECAUSE IT IS THE MOST POPULAR OR IT IS WHERE ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS ARE GOING. WHEN YOU START SCHOOL AS A FRESHMAN YOU ARE ALL THE SAME, YOU WILL MEET PEOPLE AND THESE FRIENDS WILL BE WITH YOU FOR A VERY LONG TIME, YOUR HIGH SCHOOL FRIENDS WILL NOT BE AS IMPORTANT ANYMORE. STUDY HARD BUT GET INVOLVED IN CLUBS AND ACTIVTIES BUT ALSO HAVE SOME FUN!!! GOOD LUCK!!

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I REALLY CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING THAT MAKES ME REAL FRUSTRATED. SOMETIMES THERE WILL BE SOMETHING GOIONG ON IN CLASS THAT IS A LITTLE TUFF OR I MAY BE A LITTLE TIRED FROM CLASS WORK BUT I CAN'T SAY I HAVE EVER BEEN REAL FRUSTRATED WITH MY SCHOOL.
