We’ve got your back right from the start—helping you keep your goals and future aspirations in sight and in reach.
Making connections with faculty, staff, and other students is key to your success while you are in college and after graduation as you embark on your career. As soon as you decide to become a Beloiter, we are there for you. Through our Advanced Mentoring Program (AMP) an advisor will contact you before you even get to campus to answer questions and guide you through the steps you need to embark on your educational and professional pathway.
Our Advanced Mentoring Program (AMP) is a two-year intensive advising and mentoring experience that helps you explore our campus and community, build supportive relationships, seek out opportunities that appeal to your interests, and acquire skills to thrive academically, identify potential future next steps, and begin investigating the world after college. They will work with you to find your focus, your major, an area of study or a Channel. When the time is right, you will be connected to your faculty major and minor advisor(s).
The Channels program connects you with a community of faculty, staff, students, and alumni who all share the same interests in a particular career or professional direction after college, like Health and Healing or Business and Entrepreneurship or Justice and Rights. All of these advisors and mentors, official and unofficial, become your success team to support you and guide you as you move through Beloit College and beyond.
And every spring, the entire Beloit College community comes together for Advising and Career Day with dozens of events that let you explore academic majors, potential careers, and practice your networking skills.
