Department Launches Beloit Economics Alumni Facebook Group
While Econ Day features our perennially productive face-to-face network for alumni, students, and faculty, this new Facebook Group facilitates additional networking opportunities for alumni on a continuous-time, if not face-to-face, basis. Thus, every day becomes a virtual Econ Day through the Beloit Economics Alumni Facebook Group. If you are an alumnus of our department and haven’t yet joined this group, e-mail any of our departmental faculty and we will be happy to add you to the group.
