School Overview

Ripon College is a four-year undergraduate liberal arts college located in the city of Ripon, in the state of Wisconsin. Total annual enrollment is approximately 1000 and most students live on campus. For the first fifteen years of its existence, Ripon was affiliated with the Congregational and Presbyterian churches but ties to either of these religions have long since been severed. Today Ripon is a nonsectarian institution of higher learning for students of all backgrounds and faiths.

Ripon offers bachelor’s degrees in over 32 fields of study, which include, ethnic studies, visual and performing arts, business administration, biology, communications, computer science, education, foreign languages, health services and sciences, history, law, math and environmental studies among others. The college also offers quite a few pre-professional programs for students looking to attend a graduate or professional school after completing their bachelor’s degree. Interesting, over 96% of Ripon graduates are either gainfully employed or attending a professional school with 6 months of graduating.
