Grave cleaner-turned-TikTok star

Caitlin Abrams’08 creates popular TikTok videos that investigate the life (and death) of everyday people — all while cleaning their gravestones.

“It’s a real passion project for me and something that I feel really strongly about — bringing history to life in a way that people haven’t experienced.”

Making an Impact

Students take the lead

Student senators have been advocating for the Beloit College student body for decades, an opportunity that could be hard to find at a large, public university.

Beloit’s student senators take their appointments very seriously and attend as many of the meetings as they can while striving to keep the best interests of the student body in mind.

    “As director of the McNair Scholars Program, Associate Dean DeVon Wilson’90 was a fierce advocate for first-generation minority students like me to work through our self-doubt and go on to graduate studies, many as Ph.Ds.”

    “That’s why I’m “All In” for Beloit.”

    “The day a freshman English paper was due, Professor Bernie Morrissey called on me to read mine in class. But I had been so busy with Homecoming, I only had a rough draft. Instead of putting me on the spot, he invited me to his office, where he spent two hours going over what I had written. And then he accepted it late.

    “That a professor like Bernie Morrissey would take time to help a lowly freshman tells you a lot about Beloit. It’s a place where people are invested in each other’s success, and where you create lasting relationships that carry you through your career and life.”

    “That’s why I’m “All In” for Beloit.”

    “Professor Ron Watson guided my Honors Term Project, which focused on the intersection between Rock County’s rate of sexually transmitted infections and the opioid epidemic. He pushed me to collaborate with community organizations, collect ethnographies and use my findings to inform the work of the Beloit Public Health Initiative.

    “A political theorist, Professor Jill Budny arranged to hold a seminar with students from other colleges to compare and contrast Shakespeare as a political strategist with Machiavelli and others. She invited me and a few other students along, and then quizzed us on the salient points of the discussion during the two-hour ride home.

    “During my senior year, she also invited me and about 30 students over to her house for dinner — in Milwaukee. And we all went, that’s how much we thought of her.

    “It was no surprise that, with such dedication, Professor Budny won the Underkofler Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award. And it’s no secret that brilliant mentors like her are what makes a Beloit education priceless.”

    “That’s why I’m “All In” for Beloit.”

Beloiter band: Honey Cellar

“A founder of Bits and Pieces, a Fulbright scholar, and a writer walk into a bar.”
