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.

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.

Beloit was a perfect fit for me personally because of the small size, beautiful campus and quirky students/professors. For me, the most important part of Beloit has been meeting creative people who are equally passionate about the world as I am. As a student, there is an emphasis on learning, rather than making grades the end all be all. I have been so lucky to have passionate, intelligent, caring professors who value students as individuals and who can incite provoking discussions and debate. On top of this, Beloit as a community tries to be aware of ways we can be more accepting and caring for one another. This past year I was involved in a program called Sustained Dialogue that focused on conversations between people with differing world experiences to try to break barriers. I am also involved in the Beloit Urban Garden as a recording secretary for staff meetings. In terms of social activities, there are many, many clubs boasting a host of activities most nights of the week. Nightlife generally consists of one or two parties around campus at varying special interest or greek houses, wonderful bands at CHaus (the on campus bar), or funny improvisational performances put on by Voodoo Barbie.
