Ripon College places on prestigious rankings lists

Ripon College is one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education, according to several recent rankings.

Ripon is recognized in The Princeton Review’s Best 385 Colleges: 2020 and The Princeton Review’s Best Regional Colleges: 2020 in the Best Midwestern category. 140,000 students around the country were surveyed about their campuses’ food, career services, happiness of students, classroom experiences and more.

Some of the comments described Ripon as a “close-knit community”; “a place where a student’s best interest matters; all other agendas are secondary”; and with a “welcoming nature of the campus.”

One student chose Ripon because, “I was looking for a liberal arts school that allowed me to do the things I like, namely, be involved in multiple student groups, study abroad, and take classes in different fields, all of which I have been able to do at Ripon.”

“Ripon College prepares students to be productive, service-minded leaders who are ready and willing to influence the direction of our nation’s future.” “Ripon College is not all about sitting in a classroom listening to lectures and taking notes; it’s about teaching us to become more educated in the world around us and helping us to develop the skills needed to succeed.”

Ripon also is recognized as one of the most affordable colleges in the country on Kiplinger’s Best College Values list and Money’s Best Colleges for Your Money 2019.
