From the School

Beloit College is a four-year, independent, national college of liberal arts and sciences in Southern Wisconsin. It is a college where great teaching and mentoring prepare students to lead lives of consequence and where students work on their transcripts and their résumes at the same time. Beloit's campus engages students in an uncommonly diverse residential community. The flexible curriculum crosses traditional academic boundaries, emphasizes the importance of putting theory into practice, and teaches students to develop global perspectives on wide-ranging issues. Beloit's 1,250 students come from nearly every state and more than 30 countries. With an incredible breadth of opportunities, a historic campus with modern facilities, a nationally recognized faculty, and creative, motivated students, Beloit is truly a college that changes lives. Beloit is also Wisconsin's first college, founded in 1846 on the Midwestern frontier.

Academic Programs

Beloit offers a variety of programs that supplement and complement its curriculum. The Initiatives program inspires and supports students through their first four semesters of college and includes New Student Days, a first-year interdisciplinary seminar, and optional courses designed to link each student with a peer group and an experienced professor/advisor who leads them toward their choice of major. Through the Initiatives program, Venture Grants are available the summer after students' second academic year, allowing them to pursue intellectually challenging activities that are self-testing or will benefit others and the campus community.

Advising Practicum, a full-day series of workshops and discussions held every semester before advising week, is designed to help students reflect on Beloit's educational opportunities and develop an academic plan tailored to individual interests and goals. The Upton Programs expose both economics majors and non-majors alike to the work of leading economic thinkers and then brings those economists to campus for an annual residency. The Weissberg Program in Human Rights prepares students to engage with issues surrounding human rights as well as promoting and defending these rights responsibly. Through the Weissberg Program, students have access to a network of alumni and experts and may apply for grants, scholarships, and a fellows program.

In summer, the Center for Language Studies offers intensive summer language instruction in Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, and Russian. The anthropology field training program has taken students to excavation sites from Colorado to Chile, and geology field expeditions include trips to Iceland, New Zealand, and Scotland. Each spring, students present their research at a conference-style Student Symposium event, and in the fall, International Symposium Day is a forum set aside for students to present research and projects they have conducted abroad. Beloit students serve on the editorial board of the Beloit Fiction Journal. The Lois and Willard Mackey Chair in Creative Writing brings well-known writers to campus to conduct writing workshops in residency. The Center for Entrepreneurship in Liberal Education at Beloit (CELEB) serves as an incubator for student ventures in a variety of fields, with special emphasis on entrepreneurship in the fine arts.

Students Say

Beloit College is a small, liberal arts institution with “phenomenal academics” where “people are committed to their work out of passion, not out of pressure.” As one student notes, “It’s more about the community than competitiveness.” Another says, “I was most impressed by an emphasis on actual learning as opposed to stiff competition or an exclusive focus on getting grades.” A “vibrant, interesting, idiosyncratic place,” where “every person is full of little surprises,” the school promotes interdisciplinary learning and practical experience. “Education becomes a collaborative and collective experience here.” Beloit attempts to “strike an optimal balance between freedom and guidance.” Students can create a path that works best for them, as there is “flexibility in everything from class schedules to meal plans. You can customize your experience at Beloit to fit your needs.” This creativity also applies to the actual educational process, since “you can learn in whatever way is best for you; teachers mold their lessons to the needs of the students.” At the same time, “professors here aren’t going to stand up there and feed you information.” Interactivity is encouraged, and Beloit’s intimate class sizes “usually have a good discussion portion for students to think critically and develop their own ideas.” “Professors have lectures, but they really want the students to lead conversations.” The ability to work closely with professors is highly prized at Beloit. As one student enthuses, “the personal attention has helped me to ‘come out of my shell’ and become a confident member of our academic community.” Beloit provides excellent support services outside of the classroom as well; “our Liberal Arts in Practice Center and the Office of International Education are great at providing information and support for internships, volunteer opportunities, and study abroad.” “My academic experience has been exploratory and invaluable.”

Bang For Your Buck

Beloit takes a well-rounded approach to the admission process. The college works diligently to assess the students’ total background. While most weight is given to a candidate’s secondary school transcript, which is evaluated not only for grades but also for academic rigor, significant attention is also paid to essays and recommendations. Counselors strive to find students who not only demonstrate success in the classroom but also display strong character and leadership skills. An advisor says that “This allows Beloit students to explore social, academic, and occupational aspects of life in an experimental, hands-on manner and provides equal opportunities for all disciplines.” An undergraduate adds, “Beloit is about classes which teach the student to look at topics in a broad sense and is also a school that shows kids how to prepare for their future.”

From The School

Beloit students are eclectic, defy definition, and place a premium on individual expression. Students serve on college governance and search committees, establish their own organizations, orchestrate events such as the annual Folk 'n' Blues music festival, and host their own radio and cable TV shows. The college has more than 60 active student clubs ranging in focus from ballroom dance to Ultimate Frisbee to yoga. As an NCAA Division III school, Beloit offers numerous varsity and club sports. Men's varsity sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, lacrosse, soccer, swimming, and track. Women's varsity sports include basketball, cross country, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, track, and volleyball.

Students Say

According to one undergraduate, “The student body is definitely not homogeneous, save for the liberal bent.” Another likes that “at Beloit you are respected for your individuality and your contribution to the community.” Beloiters “come in all races, nationalities, social classes, religions, sexual orientations, body types, and hair colors (including pink and blue).” “Our director of spiritual life has made a large impact on incorporating and talking about faith, religion, and spirituality.” “The student body has become increasingly more accepting.” The social environment is “low-pressure,” and being “genuine” is important here. “The best way to fit in is to be yourself; students here do not go for fakes.”


From The School


Beloit's 40-acre campus is located on the Wisconsin-Illinois state line, 90 miles northwest of Chicago, 50 miles south of Madison, and 70 miles southwest of Milwaukee in a small city that noted cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead called "American society in a microcosm." Beloit's academic buildings are clustered around lawns dotted with trees and ancient North American Indian mounds. Student residences are within easy walking distance of classroom, lab, studio locations, and the college’s athletic facilities. Nearly all students reside on campus (95 percent) in a tight-knit, active community. Beloit’s downtown is just two blocks from campus, with banks, restaurants, and shops, and a vibrant schedule of events, including the region's most popular farmers market on Saturdays from spring through late fall.

Campus Facilities & Equipment

Beloit's academic buildings are both historic and cutting edge and are located toward the southern half of campus as well as in nearby downtown Beloit. The Hendricks Center for the Arts, a beautifully renovated historic building in Beloit's nearby downtown, opened in 2010, offering students studio space for music, dance, theatre, a state-of-the-art film classroom, and set design and staging labs. A 25-acre athletic field and Strong Stadium, featuring a new turf field and track, are located just a few blocks east of the main campus. Plans are underway to convert a decommissioned powerhouse next to campus into a recreation center and student union. This one-of-a-kind reimagining of an industrial building will feature student life spaces, fitness and training facilities, a 200-meter training track and indoor turf field house, a competition pool, and a wellness center, all along the Rock River shoreline. The Powerhouse is planned to open for the 2018-19 school year.

Nearly all students reside on campus (95 percent) and may live in traditional settings, quiet or substance-free floors, in one of three fraternity houses or three sorority houses, or in special-interest houses. Two town-house complexes offer roomy, apartment-style living. Meals, served in two campus locations by premier food service provider Bon Appetit, include fresh, locally sourced, organic, vegetarian, and vegan meal options, often featuring student-grown produce. More than half of Beloit's students participate in some form of athletics-club, intramural, or varsity.

Beloit's sports and recreation facilities reflect the high rate of student participation in club, intramural, and varsity athletics. The Sports Center includes the Flood Arena, with three collegiate basketball/volleyball courts; the Marvin Field House, with indoor facilities for soccer, tennis, track, golf, baseball, and softball; a fitness center; and a six-lane swimming pool. The 25-acre field complex offers the 3,500-seat Strong Stadium for football and soccer, fields for softball, lacrosse, and baseball, and six all-weather surface tennis courts.

Beloit is noteworthy for having two teaching museums on campus. The Logan Museum of Anthropology holds more than 300,000 archaeological and 15,000 ethnographic objects from 126 countries and nearly 500 cultural groups. The Wright Museum of Art holds a permanent collection of 5,000 works of art, including significant works of American impressionism, modernist paintings, 19th century plaster casts, German expressionism, and Japanese modern prints. Both offer students opportunities to do the work of the museums in collaboration with faculty and staff.

The Laura Aldrich Neese Performing Arts theatre complex features a large thrust stage theater built to Equity standards, a black box theater with flexible staging, a scenic design studio, costume shop, make-up rooms, dressing rooms, and a greenroom. Off-campus facilities include Chamberlin Springs, 50 acres of oak and hickory woods and wildlife northwest of the city; the Smith Limnology Lab, a small boat launch and aquatic station on the Rock River; and the Newark Road Prairie, a 32.5 acre virgin prairie with more than 300 species of flowering plants.

Beloit's Center for the Sciences, a platinum LEED-certified green building, opened in 2008. Besides its spectacular four-story open foyer, roof garden, and rain garden, it features student offices and space for studio format and inquiry-based courses that integrate class, laboratory, and collaborative group work. Special facilities include a visualization lab, a 1,900 square-foot greenhouse with three climate zones, a herbarium, and a rooftop small-telescope astronomy area. Major scientific equipment includes a scanning electron microscope with EDS elemental analysis system, a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer, and more.

Off-Campus Opportunities

On average, more than half of any Beloit College class has studied off campus, in either international or domestic programs. Study abroad is transformative at Beloit, with courses that prepare students before they leave, Cities in Transitions courses that engage students in studying urban change (in select locations) while in their locations abroad, and courses and creative projects that help students integrate what they’ve learned once they return from their host sites. Beloit students study worldwide through a combination of college programs, offerings by other institutions and partners, and direct enrollment in universities. Off-campus study programs in North America are also robust and include semesters in Chicago focused on the arts, entrepreneurship, teaching, and urban studies; American University Programs in Washington, D.C.; and environmental science at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Mass. Beloit's Liberal Arts in Practice Center connects community needs with students interested in pursuing internships, field terms, and special projects. Beloit makes as much as $500,000 available to fund student projects annually.

Student Organizations & Activities

Beloit students are eclectic, defy definition, and place a premium on individual expression. Students serve on college governance and search committees, establish their own organizations, orchestrate events such as the annual Folk 'n' Blues music festival, and host their own radio and cable TV shows.

Students Say

“Beloit College graciously takes the stance that its students are adults,” and this is evident in their alcohol “philosophy,” as well as the setup of residential living. “Many people do look out for each other and tend to be fairly responsible.” Students mention that “you are responsible for yourself, and the school is there to help you when you need it,” although the alcohol policy at Beloit “has definitely gotten stricter in recent years.” Undergrads looking for alternative entertainment need not venture far. Dance parties are prevalent, and “the most popular ones are at Greek houses.” “Student Activities hosts shuttles to the movies on Friday nights and to restaurants on Sundays,” and the “Programming Board does an excellent job bringing entertainment to campus.” There are frequent lectures from visiting speakers, and two museums. Students enjoy “going to see Voodoo Barbie, our outrageously hilarious improv group,” and “events like Folk N’ Blues Festival and Apple Day are looked forward to all year.” The on-campus bar C-Haus is “always a good place to catch great live music, have a beer, play some pool, or grab some late night snacks.” The campus has good proximity to outlying Chicago, Madison, and Milwaukee, and “the parks and forests surrounding Beloit are very nice.”

Beloit College is certainly a leader within the sustainability movement And the school’s commitment to going green has never been stronger. For starters, Beloit operates the Sustainability Project Fund, which provides initial capital to environmentally friendly ventures. The proposed projects must also generate income or savings, a portion of which is then used to repay the original loan. The Fund allows students and faculty to implement policies and programs, which would otherwise be prohibited due to cost. Of course, the institution as a whole is also making an effort to be environmentally friendly. For example, several years ago the dining halls decided to go tray-less. This has resulted in a 35 percent reduction in waste. Additionally, they use locally sourced food and produce from the college vegetable garden whenever possible. Even better, two of the campus dining options have made the jump to biodegradable plates and utensils. Fortunately, there’s also plenty of action taking place beyond the kitchen. The new Science Center is LEED Platinum-certified, an honor bestowed upon only two other buildings in the state of Wisconsin. Further, any new campus landscaping is designed to emphasize local and historical ecosystems. The college uses vegetated low spots, called bioswales, to collect and retain storm-water runoff. Moreover, housekeepers are given environmentally friendly products to use. Finally, Beloit is extremely proud of its healthy and effective recycling program. Students and faculty alike have managed to recycle 76 tons of material (including paper, plastic, cans and glass). And an amazing 32 tons of yard waste was composted. These Buccaneers deserve a round of applause!
