Party Scene: It's fun, a lot of music concerts and open-mic nights in C-Haus.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Commons offers a lot of variety, but sometimes I wish they had more fish options. The meal plan in general is inconvenient for Sunday dinner and cafeteria have weird hours.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorms are old but well-managed and generally clean, the social atmosphere is conducive to hanging out and having a good time. In general, good atmosphere

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few hole-in-the-wall restaurants that are amazing.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration isn't here to make your life choices for you. Beloit College respects the fact that you are an adult and make your own choices, especially in regards to alcohol.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Beloit College makes sure that it meets most of your financial aid needs, don't let the sticker price fool you. I don't even pay half the sticker price.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The party scene isn't really prevalent on campus, which a good or bad thing depending on what you're looking for. The usual parties are usually held by Greek life, but a lot of people host drinking games and parties in their own rooms. They're just a lot smaller.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Commons isn't so great, but DKs and Java Joint have a lot more options and tend to be a little higher quality.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The residential side is all squished together, and not in a bad way. In the colder months, it is so convenient when all the dorms are close to each other. If that doesn't appeal to you, however, there are many off campus options.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek Life is a great way to get involved on campus and in the community. Beloit has Greek houses on the residential side. There is no divide between Greeks and non-Greeks. The Greek houses do good job of hosting great parties for the campus. In the spring, one of the Greek houses holds a live concert every year.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Being an athlete at Beloit has been great for being able to continue participating in multiple sports and getting a great education. The coaches and professors are understanding of the time commitment for both sides of your lifestyle.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of good Mexican restaurants in Beloit and a few good places for breakfast and lunch. Bagels and More and Bushel and Peck's are my favorites. I also love Cafe Azteca and La Mexicana when I want Mexican food. We are also close to Rockford which has a lot of options if we are looking for something new

Administration: Security at Beloit is really good. Because we have an alcohol philosophy that encourages adult decision making rather than penalizes students for drinking, people are very comfortable with our security officers. Security officers are mainly around to help students and don't make it their mission to bust people. That said, the rules are enforced so if you have a really loud neighbor or need help, they are responsive.

5 College Senior

Parking: Parking is a nonissue at Beloit. Fees are $80.00/ semester and I never have any trouble finding a spot.

5 College Senior

Party Scene: Beloit has a pretty mellow party scene. There is always fun stuff going on at C-Haus, there are bands there every weekend and there are usually things to do there on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. You can definitely find a party here if that's what you want to do but there is also a lot of other programming if going to a party isn't your thing. Beloit has an alcohol philosophy which is that the campus will treat you like an adult if you act like one. This means that people usually don't get busted for drinking (even if they're underage) unless they are being irresponsible.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: There's a lot of variety in the food and the different meal plans give you a lot of flexibility to eat when you want. The food is local and organic when possible. I am a vegan and usually can find a lot of options. When I haven't been able to find something I wanted, the chefs will help me find something or remake something so that it is vegan.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I have lived in a bunch of different types of campus housing over the past four years. You can live in traditional dorms, special interest houses which are more house style and apartments. This year I am living in an apartment with three roommates. We all have our own room and share a kitchen common space. It's great!

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus Security is one of the best parts about Beloit. Our Alcohol policy is not underage drinking (<21 years old). However, the philosophy is that if you can drink responsibly and act as an adult, campus security will not reprimand you. I feel this really adds to the campus culture where students are given the responsibility and the choice to use but are held to the highest expectations that they can do so without harming themselves, their academics, or others. Security is only on campus to keep the students safe, and they do a great job!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Bushel n' Pecks is a great option for anyone interested in local/organic/vegan/vegetarian options! Complete with a grocery section and library, film projections, and trivia nights, this is a popular hub for students! A new Louisiana Barbecue restaurant just opened as well, they value good service, so they limit them serve four families at a time, so you have to make sure to get there early. There are also several authentic Mexican and Italian restaurants, as well as pizza and Chinese delivery!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors here have obtained the highest degree in their field. They are passionate about their students, as they are their number one focus. What I love about Beloit is I have been able to build relationships with each of my professors, even the ones outside of my majors. They always ask me in passing about my dog and how current semester is going. Office hours are an essential at Beloit and more often than not, professors are willing to meet outside of their office hours if they conflict with your other classes. In other words, it is hard not to succeed at Beloit with all of the support from professors and classmates. Especially in the sciences classes have TA's that have late-night hours if you need any assistance with homework. Individuals peer tutors can be assigned as well through your professor for every department on campus. Beloit really stresses an interdisciplinary approach to education, so there are always a variety of courses offered. This approach aims to assist you post-graduation, when you must approach a task from multiple perspectives in a career.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Students can choose to live in apartments, town houses, special interest houses, suites, triples, doubles or singles all at a fixed housing price. This makes room selection incredibly easy. When you are coming in as a first year, Beloit takes housing placement seriously with in-depth questionaires about your lifestyle to pair you with a similar roomate and dorm. For returning students, there's a room lottery where seniority is taken into consideration. Overall, housing is a breeze!

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.
