Are you ready to experience the Beloit Impact?
Bring your interests — we’ll provide opportunities with impact
Beloit is positioned to help students prepare for meaningful lives after college. Beloit students graduate ahead of the game: knowing how to learn, grow, and succeed throughout their lives.
We achieve this through Impact Beloit, our initiative that ensures career exploration and readiness are integrated throughout the curriculum and student experience.
This means there are plenty of opportunities for you to learn professional skills and prepare for your own career, often working with our local community organizations and businesses.

Doing what you love
Blazing her own (hiking) trail
Environmental geology and biology double major Emmalynn May’23 worked with the Montana Conservation Corps, mentoring students, maintaining hiking trails, and paving her own way for a career of protecting state and national parks.
The experience has transformed Emmalynn’s hopes for her own career post-Beloit. The Maryland native is hoping to end up back in Montana, or at least out west, with the hopes of working with Montana Conservation Corps again, and later for an agency like the National Forest Service or the Bureau of Land Management.
“Knowing that I have this [career] on the other side has made me pretty excited,” she says. “I feel ready.”
