4 College Junior

Academics: Lots of opportunities and hands on work

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Beloit treats you like an adult. You can do as you please as long as you are being responsible and not harming anyone

3 College Junior

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't like greek life.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Especially if you like Mexican food.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: It's a wet campus that is also lenient on drug use and trusts students to make responsible decisions. In my experience, people look out for one another. I don't think drug use is a problem on campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The school wants you to live on campus for all four years, but off campus housing exists and is cheap.

5 College Junior

Parking: Parking is not an issue

4 College Junior

Computers: I would bring a computer to college.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Wouldn't want to go to a school where athletics is the main draw, so I think it's great that there is more emphasis on academics.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus, but the health center has weird hours.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Kinda whitewash, middle to upper middle class kids. But that is a generalization. The school tries to market more diversity than actually exists on campus.

2 College Junior

Transportation: Not really an issue if you have a car or know someone who does. For breaks there are vans between campus and the bus station.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Beloit has a reputation on not being attractive, but I think that has changed over time. People hear are really attractive (in general), there's just not many of us. Kinda becomes a cesspool.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I've had a great experience living in dorms and on campus special interest housing.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The town is small and quiet, and I don't know of many people who look for entertainment there. But I like living there, and since it's near Chicago I don't feel completely stranded.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Most people are liberal, but in every other way we're all very different from each other. And that's fantastic.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't party. Non-party activity, however, has been really fun so far. We've had nerf gun fights, a hypnotist, movies, and a magician.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I've heard it's okay, although I'm neither eligible nor interested.

4 College Freshman

Academics: We shall see. So far, the classes are interesting and challenging. There is plenty of advertisement and help for internship and study abroad opportunities, and there are plenty of services (such as the writing center and tutoring) ready to help.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are excellent, although you will of course run into one or two who don't fit with your particular learning style or personality. But they know what they're doing.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Let's get one thing straight: Beloit is not for everyone-and thank God, because we only have so much room here. There is a certain bond with people who have gone to Beloit, who have seen its idiosyncrasies first-hand, who know the weirdos personally and still keep nicknames for them. A four-year trudge through the thicket of Beloit education will put anyone in shape for a new challenge afterward. Some will say "if I survived Beloit College, I can survive this," while others will boast "Beloit College has prepared me well to face challenges head on, and it has made me confident that I can survive anything." Either way, they're right. Beloit is good at making a paradox out of itself.

People either love Beloit, hate Beloit, or both, but it is pretty much guaranteed that whatever you feel for Beloit, it will be strong. Beloit can definitely provide students with an amazing experience if you use your resources right. Study abroad options are spectacular, and an overwhelming amount of students end up in a different country or a different part of the U.S. at some point during their four years. Beloit most certainly is a school that has the ability to change your life, or at least, it can give you the resources so you can change it up yourself. I'm telling you, for a small school, it's got a lot of bite to it.
