Class of 2021: Molly Potter

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.

Molly Potter of Gurnee, Illinois, majored in psychology. She will take a year off from schooling to live in Chicago, then she plans to pursue a Ph.D. in social psychology.

“The most important lesson I am taking from my time at Ripon College is to trust my instincts and never stop working towards the next level,” she says.

“One of my favorite memories from Ripon is working with Dr. Ellen Lee to conduct social research.”
