â€œâ€¦it became clear that the writing...the interaction...the simple awareness of this huge world that I had gained at Beloit prepared me exceptionally well.â€
For too many people, Beloit is a well-kept secret.
As a high school senior in Ohio, Judith Miller'72 had never heard of Beloit, but her guidance counselor thought she should look into it. â€œI loved the international aspect...the Beloit Plan...the kinds of classes being offered. It seemed very different...very distinctive.â€
â€œBeloit created an environment for me to exploreâ€¦where I could be who I amâ€¦ study what I want to studyâ€¦find people to talk about my interests and views and learn from theirs.â€
For Bill Fitzgerald'86, the unique experience that is Beloit began before he enrolled.
â€œWhat clinched my decision to attend Beloit was sitting in on a philosophy class. Eight students were in a discussion with [former Professor] John Wyatt, sharing ideas. It was almost a conversation as he picked up on their thoughts and expanded on them.â€
