Health & Safety:
Our security is the best. They aren't here to get you in trouble, but mostly just to make sure that your'e ok. Hardly any campus crime at all. Very safe.

So easy to park on campus! It's free and there are usually plenty of spots

I am Greek, and I really like it. There is a stigma but we are slowly breaking it down.

Beloit treats you like an adult, plain and simple

falling apart rooms very small old heating and air conditioning doesn't always work.

I am at Beloit because of the scholarship they gave me. Period. It's a needs-blind school.

3 options- Commons, the dining hall; DK's, the academic-side grill; or Java Joint, the academic-side coffee and breakfast place. Fairly recently upgraded. Good for cafeteria food, if a bit repetitive.

It is easy to switch majors in Beloit and because it is a Liberal Arts College students are afforded the opportunity to try out various fields of study before declaring their majors. The biggest major on campus is Anthropology. The Anthropology department in Beloit is one of the Best in the country. These might in fact be where the largest classes form up to 30 per class. The staff is easy to talk to so they're there to help you decide on what you want your field of study to be. But because it is liberal arts there is no set curriculum for students to follow there there is a guide book to tell you which classes to consider completing before graduation but does not dictate when you have to take them. It's a good system. I'm currently double majoring in IR and Japanese and its great that the system is so flexible.

Beloit prides itself on being one of the few schools with the highest amount of study abroad opportunities for students so students for the most part are pretty open to people of other backgrounds. But the school itself remains predominantly white. But recently the school in an attempt to become more diverse has admitted more students from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. We aren't where we want to be with diversity on campus but i believe we're working towards it.

We recently got a new meal plan where the school brought in a company to cater for students. At first students were enthused with the idea of new food but soon it became boring to eat practically the same thing every day. Beloit serves burgers, fries, chicken and pizza everyday non stop. They do have another station that provides meals from around the world but the taste of these foods can be debatable. In total there are 3 locations on campus to get food but those who don't have flex dollars are not allowed to eat at the other two establishments. It's not a perfect system but I somewhat works for now. After freshman year you may decide what kind of meal plan you want which sucks for freshmen since they cant eat at DK's.

We have a moderately lenient alcohol policy in place at Beloit. The college understands that drinking plays a part of one's college experience and although it does not condone the alcohol use of miners, it does not look down on drinking. Our alcohol policy is put in place so as to provide students with a guideline to responsible drinking. Those who fail to conduct themselves within the limits of the policy are written up and have to go see the dean of students to determine their punishment. Drugs and smoking in the dorms is not tolerated and this rule is enforced by the students themselves. Students alert security if they suspect there to be illicit use of drugs in the dorm those caught with drugs are immediately written up and risk mild to severe consequences depending on repeated offence.
Also all parties must be registered at Pearson if a party is made without notice to the school security will shut it down and parties that are registered but get out of hand will also be shut down. Beloit does not tolerate violence and one can risk expulsion if caught fighting luckily that isn't an issue at Beloit.

I like to use the word "chill." There's not much to do in town, so we make our own fun. If you're not good at that, then Beloit might not be right for you.
Some kids stay in their rooms and do nothing & then complain about how there's nothing for them to do....

We got Bon Appetit, and they know what they are doing. It's a small school, so it's not they are preparing infinite options every day for students, but I've always been pleased with their food. Also--they do take the time to actually respond to comments and suggestions. Let-night dining leaves much to be desired, but they started a new late-night option at the end of last year, so I guess that helps show that they are listening.
In general: pleased, but not wowed. I like it.

You don't need transportation around campus because it's small, and really if you have more than like, 3 friends you'll know someone with a car who will be willing to give you a ride to the grocery store or whatever. Transportation off campus is fine. There are buses to Madison and Chicago that go every day, so getting to O'Hare to fly home isn't tough--but it does cost you about $20. The City of Beloit has a public bus system, but students don't use it much. There is a car-sharing system on campus, and I know students have used it to go see concerts in Milwaukee, but it's not terribly popular. And the campus organizes shuttles to Walmart almost every Wednesday.
In general, getting around without a car can take a bit of effort, but it's never too tough.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
