State-of-the-art equipment in the classroom, one-of-a-kind student learning opportunities, and enhancements for one of the college’s renowned programs-- all are being made possible through the generosity of an anonymous donor.
Last week, the college received a $125,000 gift that enables students to practice the liberal arts in a variety of ways. At the donor’s request, a portion of the gift will be designated to the purchase of a 300 MHz Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer. The spectrometer, a key component to understanding structure function relationships of compounds in the chemistry classroom, will give students and faculty the opportunity to work with the latest technology in science—an invaluable benefit for field work and research, and one that is not often found at the undergraduate level.
As the campus community continues the good work surrounding the development of the powerhouse, this gift has also been apportioned to student learning opportunities throughout the process. This gift will be used to provide additional opportunities for students to be intimately involved in the work underway.
Finally, this generous gift is being used to enhance one of Beloit’s top programs and commitments-- student advising. A portion of this gift has been set aside to fund experiences centered advising and the fall and spring Advising Practicums.
Said the Terrarium’s sources in the development office: “This is just one example of the many ways in which our alumni and friends continue to provide life-changing opportunities at Beloit through their philanthropy.”
