Class of 2021: Kaitlin Hutchinson

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.

Kaitlin Hutchinson ’21 of Sturtevant, Wisconsin, is majoring in chemistry-biology. In the fall, she will attend pharmacy school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

“The most important thing I have learned while attending Ripon is take every opportunity you get to learn or try something new,” she says. “Take classes that are outside of your major, join a new club and attend events held on campus you might not typically go to. Those learning moments add so much value to life and may become one of your most cherished memories or greatest passions.”

Her favorite memory from Ripon is winning the Sigma Chi bags philanthropy event with her best friend, Jenna Schoenmann ’21, our first year. “Nothing is better than a sunny warm day spent with friends playing bags in the Quad,” she says.
