1995 – Spring ’23 Class Letter

Dear ’95 Classmates,

I hope your start to the 2023 year has been a good one! Spring will soon be here along with commencement weekend for the Ripon College Class of 2023. As I write this, we are bracing for the largest snow event in five years. Even with that, winters are becoming milder and a little more tolerable, though as we age, I can see the appeal of the snowbird lifestyle.

It sounds like some of your children are attending and/or are considering attending Ripon.  That is great to hear. The campus has many really nice upgrades, and the small college life is definitely an experience students will appreciate and cherish forever.

Thank you to everyone in the Class of 1995 that donated money, time, and effort to Ripon College. It is truly appreciated! If you would like to make a donation to Ripon College, click here.
