Originally came to Beloit College on a large scholarship with additional "scholarship" (grants) for sports...was sold on the idea of being at a private college with small class sizes and access to professors. As well as being able to work with the large array of international students. The school does have great academics, especially when it comes to their science department. Beloit's major shortfall, however, is the student body and surrounding environment. The student body is extremely segregated by athletes (who make up around 20%) and non athletes. It was hard for me coming from a high school where I was friends with both athletes and nonathletes to come to a college that was roughly the same student body size and find it to be extremely closeminded and cliquey. The city of Beloit is horrible. Nothing to do, nowhere to go without a car...alcohol is a large concern at the College

Beloit's professors helped me become a better person. Beloit was a wonderful experience, though I don't miss the social scene.

Beloit College says it is "unlike nowhere else"

Beloit College says it is "unlike nowhere else" and really lives up to the statement. I am from a less liberal place and once I got to Beloit, I found people that had views very similar to mine. It is very accurate to say that if you have an opinion that goes against the general opinion, there will be some feelings of hostility. Though opinions sometimes get in the way, Beloit is a wonderful place to get your creative juices flowing in the classroom. I took an intro Geology class my first semester and as a class, we took at least one informational trip out of the classroom every week.

Outside of the classroom and on campus, it is very easy to be engrossed in many activities. Many activities add to the Beloit experience (Clubs, Sports, Greek Life, Good Friends) and other activities can be detrimental to said experience (Too Many Drunk Nights, Small Campus Drama, Weird Dating/Hookup Scene). It is very easy to find a group of people that you fit in well with.I love the fact that in some form or another, most students live on campus. It helps create a tight knit community and brings unlikely friends together.
