Class of 2022: Emma Klaiber ’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.

Emma Klaiber ’22 of Chicago, Illinois, majored in educational studies and sociology with a minor in anthropology. She will return to Ripon in the fall to complete her student teaching, and plans to teach at the elementary school level.

“One of the most important lessons I learned at Ripon is that you have to be willing to figure things out on your own and to take small risks,” she says. “I would say that my favorite memory of Ripon would have to be going to the Sallie House with the RCPI or spending time with my kindergarten students for my practicum class.”
