Class of 2022: Samantha Schaefer ’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.

Samantha Schaefer ’22 of Janesville, Wisconsin, majored in biology with a minor in psychology. She will take a year off to travel and study for her LSAT before applying to law school. She hopes to be an environmental lawyer.

“The most important lesson I learned while at Ripon is that you cannot control every situation, but you can control how you handle it and respond to it,” she says. “Some of my favorite memories include staying up all night talking and laughing with my friends. I’ll miss them dearly.”
