Class of 2022: Sonja Brueggemann ’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.

Sonja Brueggemann ’22 of Lake Zurich, Illinois, double majored in psychology and anthropology with a minor in sociology. She plans to move to Milwaukee and hopefully start a job working with children.

“Being at a school like Ripon where you have the ability to double major is a wonderful thing,” she says. “While I came for psychology, I also will be leaving with a deep background in cultural anthropology which will benefit me greatly when working with people from diverse backgrounds.”

She says working as a resident assistant has filled her with many great memories and brought her many friendships. “Being a part of ResLife is something I will always remember,” she says.
