Overview

Beloit College is Small and Intimate, Fostering a Personalized, Innovative, Flexible Curriculum

Beloit College has a national reputation for innovative academic programs and an uncommon engagement with the world and the world of ideas. As a small college of 1,250, Beloit provides its students with an intimate academic atmosphere that ensures they receive personal attention from professors and challenges that are suited to their interests and personalities. The student-faculty ratio of 11:1 and average class sizes of 15 help the college maintain a focused curriculum that is experiential, interdisciplinary, and global in scope.

Many Academic Possibilities and Courses of Study Can Be Found and Explored at Beloit

Beloit College's small size in no way limits the possibilities available to its students. The college offers over fifty majors, more than thirty minors, and several pre-professional and dual-degree programs. Students learn to think on their feet and to put their liberal arts educations into practice. They regularly engage in independent research and collaborate with peers and professors within a curriculum that is intellectually rigorous yet flexible. Students can choose from several distinctive interdisciplinary minors at Beloit, including Ancient Mediterranean Studies, Journalism, and Museum Studies, among others. Two renowned teaching museums further distinguish the college and showcase the school's strength in the liberal arts and sciences.

The Initiatives Program Ensures that New Students Feel at Home at Beloit and With Each Other

The Initiatives Program is designed to inspire and support Beloit College students through their first four semesters of college, regardless of their academic concentrations. The program begins with the First-Year Initiatives (FYI) seminar, which introduces students to each other, their academic advisers, the school, and the college experience. Beginning with New Student Days a week before the semester starts, FYI allows students to build connections and confidence and to feel at home on campus. An FYI seminar is an integral part of the program, helping students develop the habits of mind they will need to succeed in their studies and beyond as they engage with the world. The Advising Practicum, a full-day series of workshops and discussions held every semester before advising week, exemplifies the central role that advising plays in a Beloit education. The Practicum is designed to guide students in planning a liberal arts trajectory tailored to individual goals and interests. Sessions are held to assure students have the resources available to take advantage of enriching educational opportunities including internships, research, off campus study and more.

The Accomplished Faculty Makes Strides in Their Fields While Unfailingly Helping Students Achieve

An important part of personal and intellectual growth during the college experience is the opportunity to interact closely with accomplished professionals. Beloit College faculty members are distinguished in their respective fields, regularly receive grants from a wide range of sources, and publish their work widely. Professors in art and art history are actively practicing artists with work displayed around the country. Beloit prides itself on the fact that, while its faculty members are highly accomplished individuals, their primary commitments are to educating and advising students.

Student Life at Beloit Builds Community and Makes the College Experience Even More Meaningful

Beloit College prides itself on the campus community it fosters, both in the classroom and outside of it. In addition to lively discussion and debate in a respectful academic community, Beloit students have access to more than 100 student-run clubs and organizations where they can interact with one another to share their interests and build community. Beloit strives to help students find and inhabit their own personalities. Student organizations, club and intramural sports, and intercollegiate athletics are all important in that process. Other programs help students integrate their college experience with their lives in meaningful ways. A community-based learning program, internships and externships, an entrepreneurship center, and study abroad are only a few of the paths that students may take to engage in campus life and in the life of the community.

The City of Beloit, Wisconsin, its Riverfront, and Nearby Downtown Surround the College's Beautiful Campus

Though almost all Beloit College students live on-campus, in housing facilities located on the school's forty wooded acres, the town of Beloit also has much to offer for students who need a break from the campus environment or choose to remain in town over the summer. In addition to the college's own teaching museums -- the Logan Museum of Anthropology and the Wright Museum of Art -- the city boasts the Angel Museum, an Industrial Arts Museum, a popular summer farmer's market, and nearby access to the Rock River, Turtle Creek, and biking and running paths for recreation, among other activities. History, culture, landscape, and recreation combine to make the city an ideal setting for a meaningful college experience. Located in southern Wisconsin, Beloit is within driving distance of the major metropolitan areas of Chicago, Madison, and Milwaukee.
