Welcome Parents & Families
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, 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.
