Hello, Beloiters! Where did the summer go? We hope you had a good one!

Believe it or not, classes start in a week, so we are already seeing some students return to campus. International students have already arrived, while returning students move in Saturday and Sunday (Aug. 26-27).

We extend a very warm welcome to our new students who move in on Wednesday, Aug. 23. Below is part of the schedule for New Student Days, listing many great opportunities for you to begin meeting and making new Beloiter friends:

Be sure to attend Convocation, a fancy word marking the new academic year, and the picnic in Chapin Quad following.

Needless to say, it’s been an astronomical year for Ferone, now crowned the college’s “Hit King,” but it’s one year built on four others, including a semester studying abroad in the Galapagos Islands off Ecuador’s coast.
