Class of 2022: Adam Scholze ’22

We celebrate the Class of 2022, what they have achieved during their years at Ripon and what they hope to achieve in the next chapter of their lives.

Adam Scholze ’22 of La Crosse, Wisconsin, majored in communication with a minor in museum studies. He will attend graduate school or join the workforce.

The most important lesson he learned at Ripon College is, “Nothing is ever one-dimensional.”

His special memories involve his friends. “I made lifelong friends at this College,” he says. “It would be impossible to pick one out of the mountain of treasured experiences we’ve made here. Every night I got to spend with the people I love, more than any assignment, major, job or future plan, will be among the most treasured and valuable things on my deathbed.”
