Beloiters have always been all in for students and alumni. Now it’s time for all of us to be all in for Beloit. Give now to honor a Beloiter who changed your life.
Here’s why your fellow Beloiters are all in, too.
Admissions officer Frank Crivello was my first contact with Beloit College. If he happened to see me walk past Middle College to classes, he’d yell out of his window to flag me down. Then I’d walk over, and we’d chat a bit. That welcoming, supportive gesture was emblematic of my experience at Beloit.
Government & English Composition
Dr. Feder inspired a lifelong interest in politics and American political history in me. Since graduating from Beloit in 1967, I have worked with many organizations dedicated to civil rights, public education, health care reform, and separation of church and state. Dr. Feder’s excellent lectures spurred me to read all I could about these issues and get involved!
On my first day at Beloit, Professor Laura Grube made an immediate impact with the devotion and care she showed for her subject matter and for the students there to learn it. In my case, her devotion extended thousands of miles to my hometown of Quito, where her connections helped me land a summer internship at Ecuador’s largest private bank.
History & Political Science
A political theorist, Professor Jill Budny arranged to hold a small off-campus seminar with students, including a number of graduate students, from two other Midwest colleges to compare and contrast Shakespeare as a political strategist with Machiavelli and others. She invited me and a few other students along, and then quizzed us on the salient points of the discussion during the two-hour ride home.
Dr. Hank Woodard, or “The Chief,” as he was fondly known, was truly inspirational to his students. He exhibited enthusiasm, integrity, a deep knowledge of his subject, and a rare combination of caring for students while maintaining respect and admiration. Many of his students went on to teach with “The Chief” as their model.
A professor, a roommate, a mentor — who made your Beloit experience special? We’d love to hear about them.
