Class of 2021: Madira Hall

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.

Madira Hall ’21 of Marshfield, Wisconsin, majored in sociology with minors in chemistry and criminal justice. She plans to attend law school.

“The most important lesson I learned while at Ripon College was to keep pushing through the tough times and never give up on a dream,” she says. “It will happen eventually. This happened at swim conference my junior year when I broke six minutes in the 500-yard freestyle.”

She says special memories for her are getting to know the people on the swim team, especially through training trips where they would hang out together and explore the areas they were in, and becoming great friends with teammates during her senior year as they went through the pandemic.
