4 College Senior

Party Scene: Parties are generally small but fun. The on-campus bar is usually hopping, as is the "wall". Downtown is extremely close, and there are a few pretty decent bars down there as well.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: Best parties are at the special interest houses and at the wall. There are usually parties hosted by some campus organization or house just about every weekend.

5 College Senior

Academics: Academics here are comprehensive and rigorous. You will work hard, but it pays off.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Lots of students from a lot of different backgrounds. This makes for an interesting campus culture and some challenging moments as well (we have students who are very liberal, and also some who are quite conservative).

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Administration is relatively lenient about alcohol usage, provided that you're drinking responsibly and acting like an adult. They're much stricter regarding drug usage.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've loved just about every course that I've taken here. Beloit's quality of instruction is frequently rated very highly on national reviews, and it shows. Professors here are the best.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The Liberal Arts in Practice Center helps students to find internships and jobs. They have huge amounts of money available for students wishing to do independent research projects. I've been to Washington, DC on a networking trip paid for by the LAPC, and it was awesome. Nearly all students find jobs or higher education opportunities after graduating.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Beloit Security is very friendly and approachable. The student RAs are well trained and responsible. Administration takes sexual assault on campus very seriously, and all incoming students are required to learn about and discuss issues surrounding sexual harassment and assault upon arriving at campus. Downtown Beloit is generally safe as well.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: Special interest houses are quirky and awesome, and host a ton of cool social events. Townhouses and apartments are very comfy options for upperclassmen. Regular residence halls are good as well - relatively small, and with good community vibe. Each Res hall has its own unique kind of feel, so be sure to ask a current student which halls they've liked living in the best. I personally enjoyed Aldrich.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life here isn't like you'd imagine it at larger institutions. Most of their events are open to the entire campus without any cover charge or anything like that. Most organizations are very welcoming to the student body. The fraternities here are making impressive efforts to be leaders in combatting sexual assault both on our campus and across the country.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The athletic programs here are relatively small, but have really developed and become competitive in the three years that I've been here. There are usually a good amount of students attending every game. The homecoming games are quite popular. I play intramural and club sports at Beloit, which are very popular options with both students and faculty members! Sports facilities are good enough.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I'm a current student at Beloit, and it's been fantastic so far. Outstanding quality of instruction from the professors, really interesting/unique research opportunities available for students, and a huge emphasis on collaboration and putting a liberal arts education to good use. I've met many awesome and interesting people here, and definitely would choose to go here again given the opportunity.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am positive that I was supposed to come to Beloit and that I have chosen the right school for me. I love the classes, professors, and people that I have met here. I have done everything that I imagined myself doing in college and more. I have been able to pursue my passions, goals, and dreams with the support of friends, faculty, and staff here. Going to a small liberal arts college is a great experience, and going to Beloit has been the best.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: For me, I think that our Liberal Arts in Practice office (Career Center) is very helpful. They do a great job of helping to point you in the right direction to find jobs and internships.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I think that we definitely have more work to do in terms of how we handle sexual assault on our campus, but in terms of our security officers they are very friendly and approachable.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: We have 37 different housing options which include special interest houses for different clubs and organizations that are actual houses, and three apartment style living choices. We also have a wide variety of different dorm style living as well, and each I like to say has their own special personality. We have buildings that were built more recently and ones built in 1964, so it's not easy to sort of rank them all the same or talk about them all together in a general sort of way.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: I am in a sorority and have really enjoyed being a part of it on this campus. The experience is very different then what you would have at a larger school. We are a lot more community, campus, and academically focused here. We also have to sign a no hazing form so we can't make people do, ingest, or participate in anything that they don't want to. The "rush" process is pretty laid back and I would describe it as a series of open houses with different activities to see if you want to spend four years hanging out with us. The parties we throw are different than at other schools too, because all parties have to be registered with security and are alcohol free. So they are just a really great time to go out and dance, socialize, and hang out with your friends.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I am not a student athlete, so I can't really speak very well on this. However, we are getting a BRAND NEW fitness center and student union in 2019/2020 which is going to be OUTSTANDING.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have absolutely loved my time here at Beloit. I feel like I have won the lottery in some ways, because I have been able to attend a college full of friendly, exciting, passionate people. I love that the professors here really care and want their students to succeed, and that we have lots of opportunities to do research and use all sorts of excellent resources that we have right on campus. If you come here, you will have the chance to be involved in a wide variety of clubs, organizations, and other extracurricular activities. Beloit is definitely a place where you can pursue all of your passions and all of your interests to the fullest.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The thing I boast about the most about Beloit is the absolutely amazing professors who I see as incredible role models and mentors.

Overall Experience: As an east coast student, finding jobs/internships in New England can be challenging as most of the connections the college has are in the Chicago/Madison area.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel generally safe on campus. Campus security is supportive and helpful and is open 24/7. In terms of the health center, there is very little access to mental health support which is my biggest problem with the Beloit administration.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Though campus is small, it does feel like a community. There are a variety of options for housing. The special interest houses are built around campus clubs and are cozy and numerous. Each dorm has a personality and are they differ in cleanliness. Aldrich for example could be comparable to a hotel, Peet to a grungy artist collective.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: This year I joined Theta Pi Gamma because the girls I met who were involved with Theta were some of the most involved and engaged students I met on campus. After being on campus for one semester I realized that the students who I looked up to, 9/10 of them were in Theta. They stood apart from the rest of campus as students fighting for campus equality, sustainability and overall cooperation. As a whole, because Beloit students are so unique, Greek life is generally not your typical Greek life situation. The communities are accepting of students of all race, sexual orientation, gender identity and nationality, and there is a large emphasis on being safe regarding parties and alcohol consumption.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The struggle that athletics have is how divided campus can be when it comes to sports. It can feel like there is kind of two different schools existing in the same spot at times, a school for athletes and a school for more alternative students. This can be frustrating for both sides and at times feels juvenile.

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.
