“Working with Dana and the team at Riipen has been a great opportunity to bring experiential learning experiences into the classroom. By connecting students with companies, it has enhanced the Brand Audit Group Project in the marketing course that I teach to 3rd and 4th-year undergraduate students. The students now have direct access to a company contact, they have the opportunity to interact with industry experts and they gain valuable feedback on their work from the employer."

"My experience with Riipen has been extremely satisfactory. They found great industry partners for my students and they were very responsive every step of the way. As an instructor, I feel re-assured that my class will be that enhanced by these real-world experiences."
"Critical to the mission of our business department is using experiential learning to prepare our graduates for the challenges of the careers of the day as well as those of the future.
