2013 Fall ’23 Class Letter
Hey Class of 2013!
It’s been a decade since we left the cocoon of Ripon’s rolling hills, fields and lack of air conditioning.
In things that matter to you: it’s been just over two months since many of us gathered at Ripon to celebrate the occasion. Below is a photo of those who gathered.
|We would love to have you with us next time! Alumni Weekend 2024 is set for June 20-23, so please mark your calendars and save the date!
In the last year, I (LAUREN OTT GREENE ’13) have changed jobs (still at Macalester), started a business plan, learned more about plants and watersheds than a communication major ought, and last November married KYLE GREENE ’15 on our tenth anniversary of our first ADPi formal.
Something you may not know about me is that I am a third-generation legacy at Ripon. In this photo on my left is my dad, BOB OTT ’84. I feel extremely lucky to call all these people my family, and to share my chosen family with my given family. (Although, my dad would tell you that they for sure out partied us in the 80s….)
Something I am excited to share is a photo from my wedding to Kyle, last fall. Not only am I thankful for Ripon and the time I had, but for all of these beautiful people (plus more) who are foundational in my life.
Anyways, be well and stay in touch! If you’re in the Twin Cities, hit me up. I would love to walk, hike, bike, paddle, whatever with you.
|Without further waxing from me, here is what our class is up to this fall:
KAYLYN MACKIN ’13 and her husband welcomed their first child in June. He is adorable and is so sweet!

AMY DOEFER ’13 & ANDY SCHULZ ’06 bought a house in New Glarus!
CHRISTINA MOONEY ’13: “ROBERTA MARTIN ’12 is coming to stay with me for a full week. 🙂 My house isn’t clean but the best thing about a friend is that I don’t think she will care. FYI if you are in Milwaukee and you want to see her let me know!!”
MAYNA MUENCHOW ’13 started a new job in June with Surgical Innovation Specialists/ Integra LifeSciences as a Senior Quality Assurance Manager in Chicago. Her team invented, developed, and now manufactures a resorbable surgical mesh made of polydioxanone.
CHARLOTTE LEE WHALE ’13: “Spending the weekend in Ripon for our Reunion was genuinely one of my favorite trips from this summer! So good to see everyone and Ripon has so many new stores and restaurants. These college kids are spoiled!”
