Inspiring Entrepreneurship

Cooking your way through college

Experiential learning is an integral part of being a Beloiter. Jagvi Dey’24, Abhey Singh Guram’24, and Abhishek Shekhar’24 created Himalayan Kitchen as an entrepreneurial special project because of the lack of South Asian food options on campus.

“All of us have very different skill sets, very different strengths, so I feel like this is a great experience for us to come together and collaborate, and then manage being friends and also working professionally,” Jagvi says. “We find ways to make our skills work for the objective.”

“O My Floating Life”: In Search of the Elusive Wisconsin Poet Lorine Niedecker’26

Lorine Niedecker’s poetry was on the cutting-edge of 20th century modernism, but it was largely unknown and unrecognized until years after her passing in 1970. Passionate advocates like the Friends of Lorine Niedecker as well as Beloit College Archivist Emeritus Fred Burwell’86 and Professor of English Chris Fink hope to raise her profile on campus and throughout the Midwest.

“It was so obvious to teach her work at Beloit College,” Fink says. “She went here for two years. She’s Wisconsin’s most famous poet. Beloit has such a rich history of creative writing, and she’s such a pinnacle of that. And what an inspiring personal story of someone who comes from the region, who’s unknown, a first-generation college student. She didn’t graduate from Beloit, but it left an impression on her. Her personal story, as well as her poetry, has been inspiring to me and my students.”
