BIFF to Dance to Museums, LAP experiences abound

February 10, 2014

Yearlong, students enjoy experiences to put their classroom knowledge to work. It's one of of the most visible components to the Liberal Arts in Practice. Other pieces of the process include a different kind of advising and reflection of the experiences, but that's a story for an other day. Take a look at a few recent ways Beloit students are learning to put feet on their education.

From hospitality and research to social media and photography, the 2014 Beloit International Film Festival has been using a variety of Beloit College interns to assist in the 2014 event (Friday, Feb. 14 – Sunday, Feb. 23). Read more about their experiences.

An April 6 dance performance at Chicago’s Ruth Page Center for the Arts is the end goal for students enrolled in the Repertory Dance Company, a Labs Across the Curriculum course led by Adjunct Assistant Professor of Dance Gina T’ai.

The course, which is in its third offering, teaches students how to form and a run a functional dance company, including how to promote it, build a budget, fundraise, work with clients, and write grants. Learn more.

The Logan Museum’s Curator of Collections, Nicolette Meister, has been assisting the Rockford Burpee Museum of Natural History in its recovery from a flooding incident. A radio piece aired February 7 on NPR’s local affiliate, WNIJ. A student has been experiencing this project with her.
