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.

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.
