Class of 2022: Cormac Madigan ’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.

Cormac Madigan ’22 of Rosendale, Wisconsin, majored in chemistry-biology. He plans to return to Ripon College in the fall to pursue a concentration in liberal arts.

He says the most important lesson he learned at Ripon is that “more often than not, the things you’ll regret most are the things you chose not to do.”

He adds, “Between athletics, being a member of Phi Delta Theta and my time in the chemistry as well as biology departments here at Ripon, I can’t pick out one memory in particular. There are so many I’ve made in my years on this campus, and I’m just thankful for the people I made those memories with.”
