Finding meaningful opportunities to engage parents and families in the educational process is among our top priorities. Parents and families are vital companions during their child’s journey toward independence.

In addition to the events listed below, Ripon’s Office of Constituent Engagement provides a variety of parent and family leadership and volunteer opportunities and also helps plan Commencement.

Family Weekend

Family Weekend, held each fall, provides several opportunities for parents and families to get a taste of Ripon College spirit and traditions and take part in dedicated networking opportunities.

Summer Orientation

On June 7, we will be launching a digital Summer Orientation platform. This platform will host a series of virtual orientation sessions informing you about services and resources available on campus. We will contact you in June with your login credentials to access this platform. You are required to complete these sessions by June 18 in order to register for classes.

After you’ve completed your virtual sessions, you will receive an appointment with your faculty advisor to register for your fall semester courses. These sessions will occur between June 21 and 23 (the original dates for our on-campus orientation). During these virtual appointments, you will meet one on one with your faculty advisor, plan your fall semester course schedule, and submit it for registration.

Fall Welcome Week and Matriculation Convocation

Ripon College looks forward to welcoming new first-year and transfer students to campus the weekend of August 28-30, 2021 during Welcome Week. Check-in at College residence halls will be at your assigned time. Watch for signs when you arrive to campus that will direct you to the appropriate location for move-in to your specific residence hall. Details around the ceremonial Matriculation Convocation will be shared with students as classes get underway for the Fall 2021 semester.

Please stay tuned to your Ripon College email for more information. These events are designed to introduce new students to each other, the campus and academic life at Ripon. For more information on our programs, please contact the Student Activities Office at 920-748-8112 for more information.
