Hey Classmates, 

We are thinking of you, and we hope you are all hanging in there. Classes at Ripon College started on Monday, August 30 and the academic year is in full swing with in-person classes. The College is continuing to follow CDC and Fond du Lac County Health Department guidelines regarding COVID safety protocols. We’ll write more in our spring Class Letter, but we wanted to take a quick moment to send a shout out to all of you, and to encourage you to stay safe and take care as we continue to get through this pandemic.
