Beloit College

Beloit College supports and teaches its students to find ways to act positively and responsibly in a complex society, to do what they have evidence to believe is right, and to pursue actions that advance meaningful causes. This is foundational to our educational mission. We want our admitted and prospective students to practice this kind of citizenship with confidence and purpose, and to do so without concern that participating in peaceful protest will have a detrimental impact on their admission to Beloit College.

Beloit College has and will continue to support its prospective students engaged in peaceful protest. Admitted students and those who may still be in the application process will not be affected in any way by disciplinary action that may arise from participating in such protest.

Practice self care

[Check out our national organization’s page — Project LETS for more resources and information]

*There is nothing cool, strong, or hero-worthy about not sleeping or eating.*

It's midterm season for many students- which can encourage a disturbing culture of not sleeping, eating, taking care of oneself; and pushing one's body and mind to total burnout or point of breakdown.

This is not healthy or okay!

Encourage yourself & the folks around you to:

1. Check in with each other on a genuine level
2. Hold space for conversations outside of academics
3. Bring each other snacks/drinks/meals
4. Not compare/discuss grades
5. Take breaks! Do fun things! Get out of the library!
6. Be honest about your schedules- are you overcommitted? Are you taking too many classes? Is there anything you can cut?
7. Not glamorize unhealthy behaviors, such as not sleeping or eating. Don't be afraid to check in with friends privately & directly to let them know you are concerned

Field school in Greece!

FIELD SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENT (BIOARCHAEOLOGY):

This five week field school takes place on Astypalaia, a small, beautiful island in the Aegean Sea and part of the Dodecanese region in Greece. It is based on a unique archaeological site – the largest ancient children’s cemetery in the world, with at least 3000 children’s burials. In the field laboratory overlooking the sea, students learn the specialist skills required to excavate, record, identify, conserve, measure and catalogue the tiny bones and teeth of young children. This is one of the few sites in the world where children’s remains are abundant enough to provide such experience. Everyone carries out all the tasks required for each burial and so gains a useful range of experience for work on human remains.

The children’s cemetery is just below the modern town, which is on the site of the ancient Classical city of Astypalaia. The burials are in pots, mostly large amphorae previously used to transport the goods traded by the city. Their form suggests that they came from all over the Aegean between around 750 B.C. and A.D. 100. The Field School is taught within a long-term bioanthropology project involving collaboration between the 22nd Ephorate of Prehistoric & Classical Antiquities (part of the Ministry of Culture of Greece) and Dr Simon Hillson at University College London.

Dates: Friday July 1 to Thursday August 4, 2016

Field experience in osteology

Grand Valley State University and Dr. Gwyn Madden are offering a museum based research experience at the British Museum summer 2016. Students will participate in data collection of human skeletal remains from Anglo Saxon and Iron Age UK cemeteries focusing on juvenile development. Co-authorship of a conference presentation and peer reviewed publication will be possible for those students that desire to continue with the project after data collection. Preference will be given to students that have completed a human osteology course. One week of lab preparation will occur at GVSU prior to departing for London. Applications for the program are due February 1, 2016. Please have students apply at www.gvsu.edu/studyabroad.

Primatology Field Course!

Field Course in Tropical Biology and Primatology: Scholarships Available

Courses are organized around several discrete modules in the fields of tropical biology and primatology. At the start of the course, students begin by learning basic orienteering and navigation skills, while becoming familiar with safety and ethics concerning living and working in the rainforests of Peru and India. The course then leads students through a diverse range of topics, including ornithology, primatology, herpetology, entomology, mammalogy and botany. Along the way, students receive training in a variety of practical skills, such as behavioral observation, radio telemetry, recording and manipulating spatial data, tree-climbing, and animal handling. Finally, we stress at each stage the importance of considering the conservation of this special habitat, and the impact we have on it. Other Course Activities: Along the way, participants will undergo a variety of experiences: boat trips, mountain top hikes, exploration of ox-bow lakes, lifting prints from pug-marks, night hikes, a visit to a mammal clay lick, safari rides into abutting national parks, and climbing the canopy tower.

Course Options: January 1 – January 14, 2016 India: Fringe Ford Field Station Peru: Los Amigos Field Station Registration Deadline: November 27, 2015.

Please see the link to learn more about eligibility, how to earn course credit, and how to apply both for the course and for scholarships.
