Athletics: People will watch various games, though I would say basketball is one of the more popular sports. Intramurals have good participation and are fun to be a part of. The current gym/sports center is not great, but they are building a new sports facility (said to be opening in 2018), which looks fabulous.

Health & Safety: The city of Beloit is not really safe at night. Walking alone during the bright day is fine though. Going out to eat is better in a group usually. On campus, there are have been rumors of sexual assaults and they have recently expelled a student due to this behavior. The college also organized a couple of sessions talking about how to help a friend in a bad situation (that could lead to assault) and what no, which was mandatory. You also had to watch videos about abuse and assault in order to finish your college checklist before arriving in Beloit. I think the administration takes it seriously, because the students are so passionate about stopping sexual assaults. The campus is otherwise pretty safe. It can be quiet at night, which might freak you out, but I've never seen suspicious people on campus. Another thing, the campus is so small that security can get to you pretty fast.

Overall Experience: The class sizes tend to be small (less than 25 people, and most times, less than 20). Teachers are all different, but tend to be reasonable with their expectations. They are mostly approachable and willing to help. I've enjoyed my classes so far. However, the variety is limited but still satisfactory.

Overall Experience: LAPC is a part of the campus that only handles internships and life after Beloit. They are very helpful. They can connect with our huge alumni network (Beloit College is the oldest school in WI) and the alums tend to reach out and be helpful. LAPC plans days in Madison and Chicago to meet alums and seek out possible job opportunities. They also give out money to fund student projects and internships. They will help you write a resume and put together your portfolio.

Campus Housing: The buildings are pretty old but clean. The rooms have minors spots or marks but it's not a big problem. There are substance free dorms, townhouses for seniors and plenty of special interests housing which is neat. The campus is small so everything is very close. Some dorms have rooms with sinks, other dorms are more spacious than others. Most of them have clean bathrooms and floors. I have never applied for another dorm before, so I don't know how it works. I reall like the social atmosphere. Though there may be conflicts with roommates, people tend to respect quiet hours, the dorms and such. It's pretty easy to work out a problem in a dorm. Money-wise, it's better to buy your own microwave and mini fridge; it ends up being cheaper than renting it from the dorm.

Greek Life: Being Greek or non-Greek doesn't change much on campus. Though Greeks look for new recruits, there is no pressure to join. For a small campus, we still have 3 fraternities and 3 sororities. They seem like nice houses and they are all located on the same street, in the middle of campus. Greek houses tend to throw good parties. I like the Greek life on campus, even though I am not interesting in joining.

Athletics: There are a lot of athletes on campus. However, the rest of the student body doesn't feel pressured to attend sports game. We're happy when they win, but it is not a top priority. From what the athletes say, the school allows even First-Years to play football games, which they enjoyed a lot. The facilities meet the requirements of both athletes and non-athletes. Our football team this year has done really well. That is the main sport on campus, though the others have done well, men and women.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am satisfied with Beloit College because the student community is open-minded and eager to learn about new cultures. Academically, I have been quite happy with my classes. Though the class selection can be narrow, there is enough to not get over-whelmed when selecting classes. Moreover, there are many clubs on campus, which is surprising given Beloit's size. I find the environment there friendly, pretty safe and relaxed. The financial aid package that many of my peers received is also a big help. The cons of the campus is the size. Though you can get from one end to another in ten minutes, you can get quite bored. It's also a small student body, so you get to know everyone. Personally, I really like it. The mindset of people is compatible with mine and the academics/work environment matches my way of studying and learning. I would pick Beloit again, even though it wasn't my first choice at first.

Overall Experience: It's hard to find something to do on this campus. Sometime I ask myself do I even belong here, then I have to remember to be grateful and play with the cards I'm delt with.

Overall Experience: basically freshman year was great, but now as a sophomore I have been able to see the flaws in this school.

For one, the people here are all overly sensitive indivudials that live in their own universe with ideals and views on this world that just aren't true. People here are extremely inclusive, and I have seen many fights go down over weed, cocaine, shrooms, and acid. Yeah, if you like those drugs, then beloit is PERFECT for you, but the way people handle it and themselves here is unrealistic. A lot of people like to "suck the fun" out of campus events, sometimes even starting petitions to cancel events that THEY don't like just because they don't want to go to it (completely ignorning the fact that some people were looking forward to this event like the Porn & Chicken one last year) People feed off of other people's depression (and/or other problems they are going through) and it ends up increasing their own issue, and things basically snowball on top of eachother until it is a big collection of people crying and talking about how life sucks (which for me, is a really bad environment to be in - i don't need my issues to be magnified because everyone else is like it. its kinda hard to explain but it sucks)

For another, the language program here sucks, and thats what I primarily wanted to focus on in college, but it is difficult when your german is clearly better than your professor's.

Overall Experience: So far, my experience in college has been great. I'm going to school far away from home, and everyday I am surprised to learn how many students there are that also are away from home. I feel very comfortable in the atmosphere here on campus and I continue to meet various types of people everyday.

Off-Campus Dining: We are starting to get more restaurants each month in the posh downtown area. It is a beautiful walk along the river to get there (though you can take other ways). There has been some issues with street verbal harassment in the area though. There are really only three places Bushall and Pecks (great, organic, local), Cafe Formage (some food, great cheese and deserts, great to do homework), and the new Lucy's Burgers (chick, new, great burgers). There are some amazing ice cream shops too.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm not a huge party person and you don't have to be here. If I want to go out, I can. Drinking is usually apart of the culture, though it doesn't have to be. We believe in learning how to respectful and mature with alcohol (the school can think of us as adults). Sometimes the parties just aren't packed. It can get pretty cold in the winter and there is a lot of private room parties

Administration: I haven't had to many run in's with them

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Academically I got amazing funding from the school. This isn't odd either

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: As a picky eater, I can always find something. Sometimes it's a sandwich for the 3rd meal in a row though. Good meat can be hard to come by. They don't rotate their meal so we always have something new, and they like to cook fancy meals from around the world

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms are fairly old. One of the freshman only dorms, 609 Emerson, has extremely small rooms and no AC. Special interest housing is great and you can live in any of the club houses starting second semester. The houses are also on campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Commons considers enjoys using us as test subjects, I paraphrase from them.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms kind of suck, mine has no air conditioning is a tiny double with a hole in the floor, totally freshman housing. On the bright side it has a nice lounge always full of people who don't spend much time in their rooms because they're so awful.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
