Class of 2022: Alexis Krueger ’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.

Alexis Krueger ’22 of Chicago, Illinois, majored in psychology with a minor in exercise science. She is applying for jobs as a psychology research assistant in Chicago and plans to pursue a master’s degree in school psychology next spring.

“The most important lesson I learned from Ripon was in order to be successful in anything you do, you have to truly love and accept yourself first; and to appreciate the present moment because that is all we truly have,” she says. “Be kind to yourself!”

She says a special memory for her is moving in with her roommate, Gisselle Tellez ’21, during her sophomore and junior years. “We were both teammates on the dance team, and she became my best friend here,” she says.
