Dear Classmates,

Good day to you from Port Orchard, Washington. There are 190 students on the Class of 1999 roster, with student number one being MATT ADLER ’99 of Monona, Wisconsin, and student number 190 being BRIAN ZEHREN ’99 of Washburn, Wisconsin. CHRISTINE and I would love to receive some updates from some of the 190 of you for the spring Class Letter.

We are very pleased to report that Ripon College welcomed 250 first-year students with 71 percent of the incoming class hailing from Wisconsin and 74 students coming from 23 other states. Those are some solid numbers! The new class consists of 159 recruited athletes and the average GPA for the incoming class is 3.42. Classes started August 30, 2021, and the campus is back in full swing with in-person classes.

Alumni Weekend occurred 6-8 August 2021 on campus after an 18-month pause. The next Alumni Weekend is scheduled for 23-26 June 2022. 

CHRISTINE and I were pleased to increase our class’s participation during the #OneDayRally on 28 April 2021. We have an eye toward this event again in the spring. We hope to secure a few fun items that donors can win if selected during the raffle. This idea came to us late in the game last year, so we only came up with some t-shirts. You can expect us to up our game this spring. Thank you to everyone who supported Ripon College this past fiscal year through the Ripon Fund and other initiatives. 

If you have not heard, the Class of 1999 has a Facebook page, and we encourage you to join: www.facebook.com/groups/riponcollegeclassof99/

If you have any class updates, please send them our way.
