We’re big on athletic spirit at Ripon College.

From the way we welcome new Red Hawks on Move-in Day to the excitement of Game Day, the joys of Commencement Day and every milestone in between – we take great pride in the growth and development of each and every one of our students, and in the long and pioneering history of our great community of learners.

Ripon College was founded by dreamers and doers, idealists and pragmatists. They didn’t always agree, but they were unified in their belief that higher education was a beacon, one that would draw like-minded people to their frontier community from near and far. That spirit continues at Ripon today.

It’s a place where people of all backgrounds come to lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning, exploration and serious intellectual inquiry. It’s a place where questions are answered and answers questioned, where ethics and reason are at least as important as facts and figures. With its small classes, professors who love to teach, and an incomparable family atmosphere, Ripon College is the modern and vibrant realization of a bold vision.
