We welcome visits from school groups and community organizations interested in showcasing Beloit - or just a liberal arts environment - to college-bound students (high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors ONLY). Groups can tour campus, hear about academic and extracurricular programs, learn about the value of a liberal arts education, and discover what sets Beloit apart.
To request a group visit, please apply by completing a Group Visit Request Form at least a month before you plan to come. You can also call the Admissions Office at 1-800-9-BELOIT or 1-608-363-2500.
For groups of up to 40 people, we offer visits Monday-Friday. Visits typically last 2-3 hours, and we ask that your group provide one adult chaperone for every ten students. Chaperones should plan on attending all events during the day's visit.
Group visits are approved by a member of the Admissions Office. All tours will be led and organized by a student volunteer; therefore, application approval will often hinge on the availability of tour guides, among other things. Some dates are unavailable due to campus breaks, pre-existing faculty/staff engagements, or national holidays. We cannot host groups during certain times of the year, or during the days listed below:
- Student Symposium Days
- Admitted Student Open Houses
- Spring Day
If the date you've requested on your Group Visit Request Form is unavailable, a member of our staff will be in touch to arrange another time. Once we confirm the details of your visit, weâ€™ll send along more information about directions and parking. Please allow ample time to travel to campus. If your group is delayed, we may not be able to reschedule missed activities. Likewise, if your schedule or group size changes, please let us know as soon as possible. Cancellation of the visit must occur at least 24 hours in advance.
During The Visit
Take a tour
The Office of Admissions will arrange a campus tour led by a current Beloit student. Students will be able to see our facilities, as well as hear an overview of academic programs and campus life. Campus tours last about an hour, and our guides welcome questions!
As a reminder, each group must be accompanied by a chaperone while on the tour. The use of electronic devices such as cell phones is strictly prohibited during the tour. Please ensure that your participants are dressed for seasonal weather, with comfortable footwear for walking.
Go to an information session
One of our admissions counselors will host an information session tailored to your group. We can tell you about Beloitâ€™s unique curriculum, the admissions process, or how to finance a Beloit education.
We offer an all-you-care-to-eat buffet lunch in Commons, our on-campus dining hall. If your group would like to eat in Commons, please contact our office to make arrangements and to discuss rates. To receive a tax-free rate, we will also need documentation proving tax-exempt status. We accept cash, credit card, or check; payment can be made in advance or on the day of your group's visit.
If you would like to eat off campus, we can direct you to local restaurants. We can also arrange an on-campus place for you to eat your own boxed lunches.
