Liberal Arts in Practice
The moment you realize what you read about, heard about in class, and talked about with your classmates and your professor makes sense—it clicks. The Liberal Arts in Practice does exactly that for Beloiters. It is hands-on experiences, transformational moments in a Beloiters life when classroom learning comes alive—it’s real life. And then, we talk about it.
Let’s take Geology as an example: when students learn about minerals in the classroom, check out their chemical makeup in the microscope, see what makes them, touch them, taste them (yes, really), and then, go out, bear down in the wilderness and find them, explore, learn, stumble, experience, reflect…it’s liberal arts in practice. Or, when students take classroom learning surrounding sustainability and apply it to developing a community garden initiative—it’s liberal arts in practice. These experiences, opportunities really, to accelerate and enhance learning are a unique and core part of Beloit’s curriculum. And the best part is, the students tell the story—they reflect, share what they learned, deepening the knowledge gained and providing the tools to keep them moving forward. Support the Liberal Arts in Practice today and provide an “a-ha” moment for a Beloiter today.
