I have really enjoyed my time here at Beloit. I think that this is a campus and community that is great for people who have a lot of different interests and want to pursue them all. The campus is beautiful, the professors really care about your success and there are over 100 clubs and organizations to be involved in. I think that we are a very active and passionate group of people, and being a part of such a close knit community has made my college experience unforgettable and amazing.

Beloit is a great school academically. the professors are interested in their subject and in their students learning. The classes are small and offer a lot of one on one. the housing is sub par and the food is disappointing. the students are very intelligent and constantly having thought provoking conversations.

Jonathan

I have never seen such an important college until I met Beloit. Understanding diversity, they have an equity over equality policy so EVERY student is treated as equal. Plus the professors are incomparable to any other school. I would absolutely recommend this college.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I would strongly encourage myself to be a serious student. I would ask myself to very earnestly consider what kind of life I want to live and be creative in my exploration of career options. I would tell myself that my world is very small as an 18 year old and a lot of the limitations that my upbringing has placed on my career choice are small minded and pessimistic. I would ask myself what I am really interested in and what kind of impact I would like myself to have on the world. I would tell myself that I am smart enough to get straight A's every semester and that there is no excuse not to do so. I would encourage myself to make good friendships but establish healthy boundaries. I would tell myself to not drink too much and to stay away from dating until I have a degree in hand, because men and alcohol will always be around, but an opportunity of attending a fantastic school is a rare gift.

    The most frustrating thing about my school was the faculty within my field of study. Due to some poor planning on their part, my fellow classmates and I, needed to complete an extra semester of school to graduate. Towards the end of our semester we were no longer able to receive housing and meals. Nothing was done for us. We had to search for areas to reside while we completed the last two weeks after the holiday break. After some support from others, this has been resolved.
