The Student Experience: Mentorship  

Putting pen to paper

One intro class with English professor Chris Fink led Ben Katz’21 to not only major in creative writing, but also edit the Beloit Fiction Journal during his senior year.

Now, as he transitions from college to career, Ben hopes to combine his interests in public service and writing in the nonprofit sector — and write stories for literary journals on the side.

National Transfer Student Week

Finding your fit

The third week of October marks National Transfer Student Week. Join us in celebrating Beloiters, like Hardika Kashyap’22, who transferred to Beloit to find a better fit in her academic journey. “I thought I would blend into Beloit. Everyone seemed so accepting and welcoming and warm and had that homey feeling. The student environment and culture roped me in.”

At Beloit, our academic experience makes it easy for transfer students to pursue their academic passions and co-curricular opportunities — study abroad, research, and internships — while graduating on time.

Grace’s Place opens with a focus on fellowship and inclusivity

The former Java Joint is now officially Grace’s Place, named after Grace Ousley, the first Black woman to graduate from Beloit College in 1904.

Students celebrated its grand opening that featured a day-long celebration of Black culture, with food, music, and free haircuts. Black Students United (BSU) members are using Grace’s Place to invite Black alumni and professionals to do workshops, Soulful Sundays, BIPOC town hall sessions, movie nights, and celebrations.
