Class of 2022: Brianna Bembenek

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.

Brianna Bembenek ’22 of Campbellsport, Wisconsin, majored in chemistry-biology and psychology. She will be attending the Mayo Clinic Molecular Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (MPET) Ph.D. program.

“Your hard work will pay off in the end, especially when it comes to putting effort into maximizing academic performance and achieving future career goals,” she says. “This year, following my acceptance to my top-choice graduate program, my roommates and I ran outside of our apartment that night to pop a champagne bottle. I was so excited to have gotten in, and everyone was freezing standing outside waiting for me to actually get the bottle open, but the adventure was definitely worth it.”
