5 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm in a sorority and it's been a great experience. The ladies take pride in academics and are active participants in clubs/organizations and the community. All Greeks have their own housing with a varying amount of people living in the house. The outside views are scattered about the feelings.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Most students drink on weekends and sometimes during the week so the pressure can be high. Security is very lenient. You can walk around with alcohol as cops cannot come on campus.

3 College Junior

Computers: No wireless in dorms–must bring a router. Macs and PC's available in library and Science Center. Free printing.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Good quality but you need to know the right people to find the opportunity. Much cheaper but the college reduces your financial aid.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: We don't interact with the local city. Some students bus up to Madison on weekends.

3 College Junior

Majors: Wish there were more classes outside of the core classes. I hope to pursue a Ph.D. after undergrad.

3 College Junior

Majors: No internships/research opportunities for Psychology. But other majors–sociology or environmental science–have options available.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Cost around $10. Walking distance is about 20 minutes. I like La Casa Grande

2 College Junior

Transportation: Academic side is within walking distance. Public transportation is nonexistent but the college offers shuttles on Wed/Sun for errands.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Singles and doubles are the same, so it becomes competitive to get a single. Cost is around 2,000 per semester. I live it Peet–known as the party dorm. Housing works on a lottery for residence halls–you get a number and then pick your room. You can also live in Greek houses or speciality interest houses(application).

3 College Junior

Academics: The classes are of medium difficulty–they could be harder. Professors are wonderful and helpful and have office hours. Registration is a hassle through the online system.

3 College Junior

Academics: As a psychology major, I find the classes to cover a variety of fields and provide a comprehensive overview of Psychology. However, research opportunities are very limited.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Nightlife is centered on drinking and the college culture revolves around that. Security is very lenient on drinking so as long as you're responsible, you're fine.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Couldn't have gone here without all the scholarship money. Talk to the financial aid, and they'll work with you

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Many different options but for those that have dietary restrictions, it can be hard to find good food.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Everything's pretty good. Classrooms are kind of small, though. Our library is gorgeous and the campus is very green and pretty in the warmer months.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've lucked out during my time here. My rooms for the last 3 semesters have been very large. My first room was fairly small in comparison, but larger-than-average for all schools. Wood and Haven are nice and quiet, Aldrich is noisy, Maurer is quiet and clean, Chapin is loud, Brannon is loud and cliquy, the 64' halls have thin walls and doors, and the Greek houses are spacious. French house is huge (though it's no longer just French house.) We have a TON of special interest houses that are easy to get into. For all non special interest houses, we have a lottery.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most people at this school are fairly attractive. There's every social clique, every type of person. BSFFA is its own breed.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Beloit is great!! Best decision of my life!

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Yeah I don't get out much. I'm content with hanging in my dorm lounge with friends. We have an on-campus bar, but I never go there because there's always super loud music playing.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Ok, I'm hard to please because I'm vegetarian AND I can't eat carbs for medical reasons. Typically I end up scraping the cheese off pizza. I would make a sandwich, but I can't eat the bread or meat. The veggie soups are usually gross. They stopped making the specialty salads that I used to love!! Tacos EVERY Tuesday, lots of carbs and starch, etc. Not happy without my blue cheese salad and dressing!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Academics at Beloit are incredible. There are endless opportunities, so don't pass them up! The workload keeps me busy. Professors specialize in teaching and mentorship. Anthro is the biggest major on campus. It also has the most funding of all the majors.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not Greek but most of my friends are. They seem to do a lot of volunteering for it and they seem to enjoy being a part of the community.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: There are no obstacles with declaring. All you need to do is get a few signatures and BAM. Some departments also give gifts. Anthro gives bags.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: BELOIT ANTHRO ROCKS!!!!!! We pat ourselves on the back too much for being "the best." We like to brag. Regardless the professors are amazing teachers and mentors and I'm so glad I found a home in the dept. There are endless opportunities if you seek them! The work load is manageable (watch out for Rob Lafleur, however) and the classes are interesting. Rob's classes are thought by some to be more work-heavy than graduate courses at Princeton. Do your reading, because professors value participation highly when they grade.

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.
