Connecting Beloit: An Advising Practicum (featured alumni, schedule)

March 25, 2014


Haven’t you ever, as a student/person/employee, looked back at your past self and thought “I wish I could give that person some advice?” We’ve all been there. Don’t let your future self down--we’re pretty sure they’d want you to attend tomorrow’s Connecting Beloit: An Advising Practicum.

Full schedules of departmental and all-campus events are available here; below, some of the confirmed alumni featured guests, who will be attending and leading sessions--and giving a lot of great advice.

NOTE: There is a repeat session of the LAPC resume-writing workshop taking place at 2 p.m., in Science Center Room 349, which is not currently listed in the schedule.

Featured alumni:

  • Matthew Aslesen'08 (Sociology)
  • Emily Coffey'09 (History)
  • Alisha Wright'09 (Religious Studies)
  • Laura Toth'11 (Anthropology and Religious Studies)
  • James Jobb'11 (History)
  • Kevin Fenton'81 (English/Creative Writing)
  • Amy Elliott Bragg'06 (English/Creative Writing)
  • Russell Jaffe'06 (English/Creative Writing)
  • Tirzah Abbot'12 (Geology)
  • Margaret Kushiner'06 (History)

And, when it’s all said and done, you’ll have the chance to mingle with your peers and professors alike at the C-Haus happy hour, the brainchild of the senior capstone class Translating the Liberal arts, who organized the all-campus programming for the day with the aim of focusing on connections: both between Beloiters, and between Beloiters and their experiences.

"Hoptimistic Thoughts provides an informal atmosphere for the exploration of ideas outside of the classroom," says C-Haus Manager Steve Olivieri, of the end-of-the-day happy hour. "We will also be announcing the winners of the drawing, to see who won an iPad mini!"

The Coughy Haus will have its usual varied menu of craft beers and specialty sodas available for purchase (cash only) as well as complimentary pretzels, nuts, and snacks. An optional $5 beer tasting will feature five beers new to the Coughy Haus coolers. If you are over 21, bring your ID and $5 to participate in the tasting. 

See you there!
