Class of 2022: Srivalli Paulson Ihlenfeld ’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.

Srivalli Paulson Ihlenfeld ’22 of Madison, Wisconsin, majored in elementary education with a minor in psychology. She will student teach in the fall and then start a full-time teaching position in the Madison or Sun Prairie schools in the K-5th grade.

The most important lesson she learned at Ripon is “to surround yourself with positive friends who not only support your personal interests but also make bring out the joys of college.”

A special memory is from the Yule Ball event as a first-year with new friends from her dorm building. “I recall eating all of the strawberries and dipping them into the white and dark chocolate fountains,” she says. “Looking back on this memory now, it is really amazing to see the memories I made with friends I still have to this day.”
