Uncovering Hidden Campus Spaces and Places

Beloit’s 176-year-old campus is full of hidden spaces and curiosities.

We’re planning a fall story about some of them, including a rarely seen small chapel-within-a-chapel, a cave that was once used for teaching, and a red dragon mascot set into concrete on a campus sidewalk.

Do you know of an obscure physical space or an oddity on campus? Even if you don’t know the story behind it, send an email to belmag@beloit.edu and we’ll investigate.
