About the Terrarium

The Terrarium is Beloit College’s internal hub for news. It also provides vital campus resources such as the Master Calendar, the portal, email, etc., Commons’ menu, and selling your stuff in the classifieds.

What is the Terrarium?

The website is a campus resource for viewing the Master Calendar, accessing college resources (the portal, BLink, email and more), and learning about campus stories.

The Terrarium email, distributed every other Sunday, features stories about the campus community. (All employees and students are automatically signed up for this newsletter.)

The Terrarium daily events email appears in the inboxes of faculty, staff, and students at 7 a.m. every weekday and features all events listed on the college's Master Calendar for that day, and the day to come. The Monday events email provides a full snapshot of the week ahead, and the Friday events email provides a look at what is happening over the weekend. Campus community members can post events to the Master Calendar using the Event Submission Form.
