Greetings, Class of 2010!

 

We hope that this Class Letter finds you and your families healthy and safe during this time. We know we can all agree at this point we would rather move on from 2020 and 2021 and hope 2022 turns out to be the year we are all hoping for!

 

As you know we had our annual Alumni Weekend from August 6-8. Alumni were present representing classes of 1961 to 2023 and it was a great weekend gathering. From the reminiscing of lounge parties in the Brockway Theta Chi lounge to eating frozen cocktails in the Commons, it was a weekend to remember. Besides the rain (we all got soaked), it was amazing seeing classmates many of us have not seen since we graduated. Any interaction felt like an old habit, as if we had just hit the Pub (now The Spot) for breakfast before a long day of classes. 

 

In regards to campus, we know many of you have seen that the College is open for in-person instruction and students recently moved on campus as we write this letter. We are hopeful they have a great year making many of the same memories we did at Ripon College. It is because of generosity like yours the College continues to thrive today.
