Class of 2022: Mason Lesley ’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.

Mason Lesley ’22 of Grant, Michigan, majored in finance with a minor in coaching. After graduation, he plans to work for Vivint Security for the summer while seeking other job opportunities. He hopes to build a base of funds to be able to move where he wants to without limitations.

“From all my experiences and lessons at Ripon, I’ve learned that as long as you are willing to work hard and learn, then you can be successful,” he says. “It’s all about being confident in yourself and striving to do your best, hard work produces great results!”

He says he has had so much fun at Ripon, it’s difficult to choose a specific special memory. “Overall, I’ve had so much fun with my brothers in the fraternity and the football team, so what was special for me was having the opportunity to spend time with them and learn and grow with them,” he says.
