Class of 2021: Ashley Shudy

We celebrate the Class of 2021, what they have achieved during their years at Ripon and what they hope to achieve in the next chapter of their lives.

Ashley Shudy ’21 of Waukesha, Wisconsin, is majoring in biology. After graduation, she plans to take a year off to get more work experience and then apply to graduate school for physical therapy.

The most important lesson she learned at Ripon is to “make connections and check your sources,” she says.

Her favorite memory is “going into Ceresco Prairie in the pouring rain to collect data for class. Everyone was soaking wet, including (Assistant Professor of Biology) Ben Grady, but it was a lot of fun and one of my favorite memories.”
