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

I strongly recommend visiting schools of various different sizes. After you find a school that you really love, I recommend investigating the other schools in the conference. Chances are that they are very similar and one might have a little more to offer you than the origional school you were attracted to. Overall, make sure that you are 100% certain of a school before you go to it. You have to be willing to live with and love the faults of the school from they day you go to school there to the day you graduate. Make sure that they are academically focused because this education is going to teach you the skills you need to succeed. Academics are not necessarily where the most is learned at school. Activiites outside of school work often teach more valuable and hands on skills that will be used in your future work place. With that said, make sure there are activites that you are interested in at the school outside of the academics. Lastly, get excited and have the time of your life!

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I do a lot of work that will help me in my future career. I do a lot more homework than my friends at state schools, but the presentations and papers that I have written have improved my skills and will be very benificial to my future career.

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

The worst thing Ripon College is it's very hard to get A's in your class, because the professors here pushes the students to their limit and expect the students to get about a C's on their testes. This makes it's diffcult for a student with good GPA from high school to have their GPA drop in college.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The type of person hat shouldn't attend this school are people that don't want to work hard in their education, becuase at Ripon College you have to work hard to get the your education. This school is a small school that makes everyone here to feel like a family, so if a person doesn't want to have a feeling of a family at this school than this isn't the right school for them.

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

To determine which is the right college, you must determine in which enviroment to you learn best in, forexample, if someone learns better with a small class size then a bigger class size or vice-versa. From there they will have some of the colleges narrow down, there on just visit the colleges that they have pick during the school time and determine is that the best learning enviroment for them. Most importantly, don't think about the money, becuase if you think to much about the money you will end up in some college that you won't even like and you might not get the best learning experiences from that college that you are attending. Just remember that money doesn't matter, all that matters is your education.

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

Do lots of research. Go visit the schools and talk to not only admission counselors but current students of all types. Really get a feel of the campus and the students there, so you know you can fit in. It helps to know slightly what you are looking for, that way when you visit the campus, you will have an idea if it is right for you or not. then once you choose a school, go and join clubs, join a fraternity or sorority, play sports. It is the easiest way to meet people, and will give you a head start in forming social groups and networks for later on in life. Get involved, and dont take anything for granted.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A goal oriented, yet somewhat relaxed; willing to be social and meet people, but know when to stay in and study. They must be independent, or mostly independent to succeed.
