Tuition award and classroom named in honor of Professor Ranjan Roy
Beloved by generations of students who said he was the best math teacher they ever had, Professor of Mathematics Ranjan Roy brought passion and knowledge to his teaching and sparked an interest in math among students with little confidence in the subject. Students often said they would take any course at Beloit, as long as he was teaching it.
After his sudden death in August 2020, a group of his former students and friends created the Ranjan Roy Tuition Award. This award will be offered with preference to a student studying mathematics at Beloit College. Their goal is to raise $25,000 for this award.
His favorite classroom
Professor Roy will also be honored when one of his favorite classrooms, room 201 in the Sanger Center for the Sciences, will be named for him. He preferred the classroom, in part, because it has a chalkboard as opposed to a whiteboard.
