Class of 2022: Lizeth Barbosa ’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.

Lizeth Barbosa ’22 of Wild Rose, Wisconsin, majored in sociology with minors in French and psychology. “After graduation. I plan on taking one or two gap years to work and travel before looking into graduate schools.”

She says the most important lesson she learned at Ripon College is that “it’s OK to be proud of my own hard work and to be open-minded. One special memory is going to Tennessee with the Center for Diversity and Inclusion and one of my close friends to visit the National Civil Rights Museum my freshman year. I got the opportunity to travel and learn at the same time, which I am very thankful for.”
