Class of 2021: Alexis Riggs

Alexis Riggs '21

We celebrate the Class of 2021, what they have achieved during their years at Ripon and what they hope to achieve in the next chapter of their lives.

Alexis Riggs ’21 of Ripon, Wisconsin, is majoring in anthropology with a minor in sociology. She has accepted a job at Lutheran Social Services as a service coordinator for individuals with disabilities and the elderly. This fall, she will attend graduate school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to study clinical rehabilitation counseling.

“My favorite memory at Ripon College was being featured in ‘Portraits of Ripon’ as it gave me many opportunities to continue to tell my story of being a first-generation college student with a physical disability after it was posted,” she says.
