For me, Beloit has truly lived up to the idea that colleges can change people’s lives. The support I’ve gotten, the critical thinking I learned, and the experiences I received at Beloit have helped carried me through to a life I love and a career that has been incredibly rewarding. I can attribute so much of what has helped me prosper to my Beloit experience. I also met my amazing wife Beth at Beloit, so that has also endeared me to the college.

The liberal arts education offered at Beloit College opens minds which, in turn, opens doors and new paths one doesn’t even imagine when first setting out on their career. Beloit is where I learned I could pursue my varied interests as far as I wanted to take each of them, and the only limitation to how far I got was my priorities and effort. This “I can” attitude helped me throughout my life. Beloit College quite literally changes lives.

Beloit College has shaped so much of my personal and professional life. From my time as a Beloit College Help Yourself Programs student from the 4th through 12th grade, my time as a McNair Scholar, and working for the college, I have strong ties to the college and the community. I am glad to serve in this capacity with my fellow Beloiters!

Beloit’s unique culture and engaging faculty encouraged me to leave my comfort zone and pursue experiential work that helped shape who I am today. Also being able to play college soccer and lacrosse was neat as well.

Beloit College liberal arts education has had a deep influence on almost every aspect of my life. The respect for different views and ability to approach any issue from all angles were engrained in my personality during my time at Beloit College (2000-2003). To me, Beloit College’s version of liberal arts education is about having the ability to be flexible and strong enough to explain ones view while also be willing to have them changed if convinced otherwise. The world can surely use more of that and it has only become even more important in time.

I love Beloit because it is a place that cultivates an interest in learning and a curiosity in the world. While at Beloit, I learned how to problem solve and work with a diverse and passionate set of people. I was also given the space to find my own skills and interests. While studying abroad my junior year, I learned Geographic Information Systems (GIS). With that skill, and the foundation I gained at Beloit in communication, critical thinking, and just a plain interest in everything, I’ve been able to use my liberal arts education as a basis for an interdisciplinary career in STEM, working in the public and humanitarian sectors. All Beloiters I have met have such interesting stories, and it’s an inspiring community.
