Studying the Holocaust and memory in Germany and Poland

Guided by Beloit College President Eric Boynton, a professor of philosophy and religious studies, the students became a learning community, realizing the importance of preserving history and taking responsibility to avoid the mistakes of the past.

A Minute With Garrison Ferone’22

In late April, fifth-year biology and Spanish language double major and shortstop Garrison Ferone’22 got his 205th hit, breaking Beloit’s all-time record previously held by Mike Kovach’11. Needless to say, it’s been an astronomical year for Ferone, now crowned the college’s “Hit King,” but it’s one year built on four others, including a semester studying abroad in the Galapagos Islands off Ecuador’s coast.
