Class of 2022: Brianna Skelly-Kirvan ’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.

Brianna Skelly-Kirvan ’22 of Rochester New York, had a self-designed major in sustainability and environmental justice. She plans to attain Sustainability Excellence Professional credentials and go into the workforce.

The most important lesson she learned at Ripon was developing the skill of systems thinking, a holistic approach to analysis, that she says she learned through various classes across multiple disciplines.

Her special memory is “having the opportunity to participate in the Ripon College Sustainability Internship alongside former Director of Sustainability Alice Reznickova, on projects both for and outside the College.”
