Class of 2022: Abagayle Buksa ’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.

Abagayle Buksa ’22 of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, double majored in psychology and early childhood/middle childhood education with a minor in sociology. She plans to enter the workforce right away while seeking a job in her field. She also hopes to attend graduate school later.

“One of the most important things that I learned throughout my time here at Ripon is that no matter what life throws at you if you keep going you will do great things,” she says. “Everything that you do here at Ripon matters.”

A special memory is “when two of my closest friends/ sorority sisters and I got matching tattoos together and created a lifelong bond in more ways than one.”
