Class of 2022: Lindsey Wigand ’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.

Lindsey Wigand ’22 of West Allis, Wisconsin, majored in theatre and psychobiology. She will be attending the University of Nevada-Las Vegas as a graduate assistant as she pursues a master of fine arts degree in stage management.

“The most important lesson I learned at Ripon College is to try and have fun and not take things so seriously,” she says. “It’s hard sometimes, but in the end you’re better off for it.”

She says her special memory is “running a successful 24-hour theatre performance this semester where we wrote, directed, rehearsed and performed 40 skits in 24 hours. It was a lot of fun to get to hang out with some of my best friends and perform silly scenes on the stage.”
