I grew up in Ripon, Wisconsin a small town just outside of Oshkosh. After starting my college career in Indiana I decided to transfer to Ripon College where I earned a bachelor of arts degree in Environmental Studies. My private liberal arts education helped me grow tremendously as a student as well as a person. The smaller college and surrounding community welcomed me with open arms instead of just treating me like a number or statistic. In my opinion there is no price that you can put on the personal education and experiences I had at a small, private liberal arts college.
