Chicago Field Day: a recap, and some pics of the networking event

March 5, 2014

Chicago Field Day

On Feb. 21, Beloit students (above) spent the day in the Chicago area meeting with alumni and learning about various career opportunities in the sciences. After spending the morning touring Argonne National Laboratory (talking to John Freeland'90, below) and hearing from three alumni who work in the facility, they continued to Rush University Medical Center, where they spoke with alumni working in research, scientific writing, public policy, and web development.

The day culminated with a reception, where alumni from throughout the Chicago area joined current Beloiters to talk about their post-Beloit career paths, and how Beloit prepared them to be successful. The event was co-sponsored by the Liberal Arts in Practice Center and the Office of Development and Alumni Relations.
