“The most important lesson that I learned from Ripon College is how to manage adversity. No matter if it comes from athletics, school or daily life, my time here has prepared me for success in my future endeavors. Upon transferring here after my freshman year, the community that I was welcomed into was super-receptive, and that’s something I’ll never forget.”

“I learned the importance of hard work and determination. I will be graduating from Ripon with a double major in three years instead of four. During my three years, I made the Dean’s List, coached basketball for high school junior varsity girls and worked at a local bank. I was able to do all of these things because I am determined and confident in my capabilities. Ripon College has been an amazing experience, and I love all the people whom I have met along the way!”
Madelyn Kohn '22
“Everyone at Ripon, from Pearl in the Commons to my professors in the biology and chemistry departments, were always so friendly and supportive, and I could not have accomplished everything I did at Ripon without a whole community of support.”
Adam Wronski '20
