What do you love most about Ripon College and your involvement here? What I love most about working at the college is the close knit community that we have with our faculty, staff and students.
What advice would you give to a potential donor who is considering investing in Ripon? There are so many exciting opportunities happening on campus and many different areas that are in need of support within the college.
Why do you think giving back is important to the advancement of Ripon and its students? Giving back to Ripon College is important to keep the institution thriving and up to date in order to provide a successful life-long learning experience and skills for our students while they are on campus and long after they have graduated.
