About the Terrarium

The Terrarium is Beloit College’s internal news and information site, a place for showing and telling the stories of the people, spaces, and projects that populate this campus and the surrounding community. We want to eschew the idea of academic institution as an ivory tower, and live up to our namesake: a transparent but distinct ecosystem, rich with growth.

It’s a place where you can learn the basic time/date/location of campus events or access your Beloit email, but also explore what makes Beloit Beloitish through profiles, interviews, videos, and photographs. Posts are updated Monday through Friday during the academic year, with a daily morning email providing links to individual stories. During the summer, we send out a weekly email digest on Monday morning.

Produced by the college’s Office of Communications and Marketing, the Terrarium is edited by Lynn Vollbrecht; Communications and Marketing manages the Master Calendar.

Want to add an event to the Master Calendar? Contact Communications and Marketing at 2625. Have a story idea, photo to share, suggestion, or know of someone we should be writing about? Shoot an email to Lynn at
