Class of 2021: Luke Dretske

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.

Luke Dretske ’21 of Berlin, Wisconsin, is majoring in finance and in politics and government, with a minor in law and society. He is a legislative assistant for the Wisconsin State Assembly.

The most important lesson he learned from Ripon, he says, is “the biggest supporter of your journey is yourself.”

His special memories include “taking any class with Dr. Lamont Colucci (professor of politics and government) who is a book of knowledge and one of the best professors on campus.”
