Class of 2022: Jordan Brawner ’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.

Jordan Brawner ’22 of Racine, Wisconsin, majored in biology. He plans to get married in July and then search for a job in the field of biology.

“The most important lesson I will be taking away from Ripon College is not taking things as face value,” he says. “We have been taught rigorously to face a question or a statement and look at all angles, interpret what the information means, and come to a conclusion with confidence.”

His most special memory is from his sophomore year “when I first brought my poison dart frogs to campus and the biology department was ecstatic to have them there. Going with this, I also really enjoy the attention the frogs get and it was the best when I had a photo shoot with the frogs for the school.”
