About

History

Beloit College was chartered by a group of educated, innovative New Englanders in 1846—two years before the Wisconsin territory became a state. Since then, our students, faculty, and staff have created a campus that seeks to push boundaries, defy expectations, challenge societal norms. That’s just the Beloit way.

Education

With a liberal arts education, Beloit students always find a way to make their college experience their own. Beloiters inherently march to the beat of their own drums. With a liberal arts education under your belt, you learn to love dabbling in a bit of everything. You take a geology class on a whim and are surprised by how much you love it. You attend an interest meeting for Art House and decide to live there next semester. You become a DJ for student radio station WBCR. You add a political science minor because your favorite professor recommends you, and you think, why not?

Research

Diversity Leaders are faculty and staff members who have successfully completed either the pedagogy series, curriculum workshop, or have been part of a peer coaching team. Leaders undertake either nine or 12-month projects in collaboration with 3-4 student Inclusion Fellows.

Career

Each year, the Career and Community Engagement Center offers day-long, fall break “In Practice Trips,” which allow selected students to explore a field of interest, such as health care, environmental studies, or social entrepreneurship. The next In Practice Trip will be announced in August 2020.

Student Life

Campus life

Located at the intersection of the Rock River and Turtle Creek, Beloit’s hometown is an industrial city reborn. The downtown core near campus once housed a machine-parts foundry. Now it’s home to our center for entrepreneurship and the Powerhouse, a world-class student center/athletic facility we built in a decommissioned power plant. You’ll also find galleries, shops, riverside bike trails, tech start-ups, and an urban farmers market nearby.

Sports facilities

Throughout most of the last century, it was spaces like the Smith Student Union where faculty and students, the studious and the not-so-studious, mingled and worked together. A central gathering space has been missing from campus for more than 30 years.That has changed. The Powerhouse is a $38 million project that repurposes the decommissioned Blackhawk Generating Station on the Rock River into a 120,000-square-foot student center in every sense of the phrase.

Student clubs

Beloiters have a wide array of interests outside the classroom. Dungeons & Dragons. Art. Ultimate frisbee. Planning concerts and campus events. Yoga. If you like it, chances are good that you’ll find someone else who does, too. Beloit currently offers over 60 clubs, and if they don’t have what you’re looking for, you and your friends can create your own.

Student Reviews

Liberal Arts for a Price
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The Liberal Arts in Practice aspect is absolutely amazing and you should take full advantage of it! However, the price for the college is incredibly high and their financial aid is not great due to their financial situation. Expect to come out with significant loans unless your parents can assist.
