With a nod to commencement, in-depth explorations of courses rich in the liberal arts tradition (meditations on happiness and women’s singing groups, respectively) and a look at what it really means to be “a Beloiter,” the summer issue of Beloit College Magazine is going to be hard to put down.
Luckily, there are enough copies to go around, and you can already read (and comment!) the magazine online at www.beloit.edu/belmag.The Mail Center will slot copies in faculty, staff, and rising seniors’ mailboxes early the week of July 25. Additional copies will be available in the Pearsons main floor literature rack or in the Office of Communications and Marketing at 631 College St.
Editor Susan Kasten says this issue debuts a re-imagined news section, aimed at covering more ground. “One example is our coverage of Diane Lichtenstein’s fascinating class about pursuing happiness,” she says.
Much of the coverage in this magazine focuses on what it means to be a Beloiter, and a story aimed squarely at figuring out what that phrase means is one of Kasten’s personal favorites.
“One of my favorite things about this issue is the cover story, “We Are Beloiters,” which involves four students’ personal reflections on their years at Beloit,” she says. “It’s only a small glimpse at what it’s like to be a student here, but, collectively, these stories speak to why Beloit is such a transformative place.”
