Beloit College recently held its third Advising Practicum, and its successes were mentioned this week in an article on NBCNews.com.

“Student advising plays key role in college success – just as it’s being cut” was produced by The Hechinger Report, a nonprofit, nonpartisan education-news outlet. The article was picked up by NBCNews.com on Tuesday (Nov. 13).

In the article, Natalie Gummer, co-director of first- and second-year programs at Beloit, told reporter Jon Marcus, “We’re trying to help them prepare to move from a liberal-arts education into the job market. And (Advising Practicum) helps to keep them on track.”
