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.

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.

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.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: If you're an athlete, you will be on a throne by the administration. If you're not an athlete, be prepared to watch student-athletes get things handed to them.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a varsity athlete, I would say that sports are under-supported by most of the student population. We do not have many long-standing winning programs, and we struggled athletically this past year. Our facilities could use some work, and they have planned to make a new sports facility, which I unfortunately may not get to utilize much due to its completion being years away.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Beloit is not exactly "into" sports. Generally, we're not very good at them. I think students at Beloit would much rather wrestle with weird trivia than with their bodies. We're sort of a sit-down campus-watchers, not doers. Intramural sports are definitely big, though, probably because the pressure is off, and people who aren't that athletic (a good 90 percent of the campus) can run around a little without letting down a team. And if they fall down, hey, it's okay, so has everybody else. Watch out for Frisbee, and I mean that in the most literal sense-those Frisbees are flying all over the place (right at head level) once spring hits the campus. Who needs a real golf team when you've got the Frisbee version?

In defense of the ones that do, in fact, play a sport: the athletes put a lot into their sport. The teams are small so players all have a role, for the most part, and they are consequently more dedicated to their team. So even if they do lose nine times out of ten, they go home with their dignity and team spirit in tact.
