Hello, Beloiters! One week of classes followed by a long weekend — not a bad start to the semester.

We hope you enjoyed being with your (new) friends, participated in campus activities like the the football season opener (which ended with Beloit’s victory), the BSG Bash, or maybe rented a canoe at the Buccaneer Boathouse. And there’s always next weekend. Now, time to buckle down for week two of classes.
