Samantha Abrams '17

International Education Intern

My goal is to foster international education through inclusive and versatile engagement with international students, support for purposeful study abroad preparation and reflection, and promotion of diverse opportunities within the college and community. I love getting to know international students and discussing study abroad experiences. I majored in Spanish and minored in Theatre Performance at Beloit, and studied many other disciplines. I studied abroad in Valparaíso, Chile, where I perfected "Chilean" Spanish, wrote and presented a dissertation, and played the lead role in a play.

In my free time I enjoy listening to music, writing poetry, and attending Zumba classes.


Elizabeth Brewer

Director

My job is to help ensure that there is an international dimension to all Beloit College students’ educations.   To that end, I oversee our exchange partnerships, work with faculty to internationalize their teaching, help ensure that international students receive the supports they need, and advise students about study abroad opportunities.  When working with students, my aim is to empower them to stretch themselves and take ownership of their learning. 

When not in the office, I love to wander, whether through cities or the countryside, and to make things and do things.


Christina Eddington

Instructor of English as a Second Language

I am an English as a Second Language instructor who has taught in a variety of academic and community settings both in the United States and in South Africa. I enjoy helping students strengthen their English language skills and learn about the local culture. I am also a language teacher trainer.

When not in the classroom, I love to travel the world by bicycle.


Shannon Jolly

Assistant Director and International Student Advisor

I advise international students and visiting scholars on matters related to maintaining F-1 or J-1 status, cultural adjustment and making the most of their time at Beloit College. I also help programs about and for international students and I advise the International Club.

In my free time, I enjoy playing the piano and the trumpet, reading and traveling.


Kathy Landon

Program Coordinator

One of my primary roles is to help Beloit College students explore their options for Study Abroad and/or Domestic Off-Campus study. I also help to facilitate the application process for students studying at one of our exchange partners, and offer advice with all other application inquiries. I am happy to help field student Visa questions, billing questions and  Study Abroad Insurance questions.

Outside of the office I enjoy time with my family, traveling and coaching age-group swimming.


Josh Moore

Associate Director

I work with Beloit College students to help you identify and prepare for off-campus study opportunities. I also am here if you run into an emergency while abroad and will help you make sense of your experience and sort out your transcript when you return. I coordinate grant programs and annual lectures that help bring the world to Beloit College and that help students carry out projects over the summer.

Outside of work, I enjoy carpentry, music and cycling.
