Grant Ripperda

Meet Grant

A computer science major from Sherman, Illinois.

What do you expect to gain from being a Noblitt Scholar?

I'm super excited to be apart of a hardworking group that will push me to be the best student I can be at Rose-Hulman.

How do you spend your free time?

My favorite thing to do is woodworking projects in my garage with my dad. I also enjoy working on my Jeeps and four-wheelers/ dirtbikes.

What is the nerdiest thing you do?

I would say that my woodworking hobby is the "nerdiest" thing I do. I also know how to sew and have done a few projects with that as well. I don't really consider them "nerdy" things, just activities that kids my age don't normally do anymore.

How do you hope to change the world with the knowledge you gain at Rose-Hulman?

I just hope to be apart of a company that values its employees over money.

How did you know Rose was right for you?

I visited Rose several times, and at each visit, I really enjoyed the people there. Everyone was very nice and made me feel welcome on campus.
