We’re still here: Morgan Exner ’20

Finishing the semester off campus has been challenging for Ripon College senior Morgan Exner of Janesville, Wisconsin.

“It is a tough position to be in,” she says. “I thought online classes wouldn’t be too bad, but they are terrible and working in a home environment does not work well compared to the school environment. So, I just gotta truck along and try a lot harder to accomplish things.”

Exner is a double major in early childhood/middle childhood educational studies and biology. In the fall, she will be student teaching.

“The most important thing I’m taking away from Ripon College and my time there is to never take your time for granted because you don’t realize what you have until it’s gone,” she says. “Getting your season cut short and leaving your friends and the memories earlier than anticipated is much tougher than you would expect. Never take the things you have for granted because it could all change or end in the blink of an eye.”
