Class of 2021: Brooke Bauer
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.
Brooke Bauer ’21 of Palatine, Illinois, is majoring in physical education with minors in health and educational studies. She will be looking for a job teaching high school physical education in Illinois.
The most important lesson she learned at Ripon, she says, is “to push yourself and work hard. Four years is not a long time. You won’t realize that until you’re almost done, and you need to make the most of everything you do. It will all pay off in the end and make every second worth it.”
She adds, “I have made so many fantastic memories it is nearly impossible to think of one. Every single person I have met on my journey at Ripon has made it all worth it and I wouldn’t change it for anything.”
