Mustafa Quadir ’20 Reflects Upon His Time at Beloit
Inspirational, supportive, and boundary-pushing; these three words best describe the kind of mentorship I’ve received over my time at Beloit. This mentorship allowed me to find the perfect balance between my goal of attending medical school and my new-found passion for using Anthropology to better understand the world around me. While I honed my lab skills in the Science Center, I was able to pursue my research interests in Bioarchaeology, presenting at regional and international conferences along the way. Beyond the classroom, Beloit allowed me to experience the outdoors through the Buccaneer Boathouse, better understand college governance by allowing me to be a student representative on the board of trustees, and welcome new Beloiters by working in the Office of Admissions. I am thankful to leave Beloit with strong communication skills, the ability to critically engage with the world, and a strong desire to give back to my local communities.
