Ripon College referenced in article in Wall Street Journal
Ripon College was referenced in the article “To Save Themselves, Small Colleges Offer Lifeline to Their Hometowns,” published Dec. 21 in the Wall Street Journal.
“Feeling weight of job losses and local flight, rural schools invest in nearby communities; ‘we can’t survive if this town isn’t healthy,’ ” the article states.
“At Ripon College in Ripon, Wisconsin, a 2014 survey of students who were accepted but didn’t enroll found many were turned off by Ripon’s moribund downtown. In a bold show of support, the school moved the president’s office off campus, to the city’s desolate main street. It also helped install art galleries and shops in formerly abandoned buildings and opened a student-designed park in a vacant lot. A $22 million athletic facility for students and area residents is set to open next summer.”
