Ripon College cited in success story in Inside Higher Education

Ripon College is featured in an article published today, April 6, in Inside Higher Education.

“A Pandemic Financial Success Story?” focuses on Endicott College in Beverly, Massachusetts, how its endowment has grown and factors that contributed to it being in a better financial position now than it was before the pandemic.

“Ripon College in Wisconsin also has reason to celebrate,” the article states. “It has maintained steady enrollment levels through the pandemic. So far this spring, the college received 20 percent more tuition deposits than it did at the same time last year. Ripon is also on track to collect more deposits this year than it has in nearly 50 years.”

The article also shares that Ripon’s endowment has recently grown to more than $100 million for the first time.

President Zach Messitte shares his thoughts on reasons Ripon’s enrollment has grown.
