Uncovering Hidden Campus Spaces and Places

Beloit’s 176-year-old campus is full of hidden spaces and curiosities.
  • Many students, faculty, and alumni have walked past these intricately carved terracotta blocks, sunken into the brick wall of a well-used campus lobby. Do you know what they are, where they are, and why they were preserved? If you do, email us at belmag@beloit.edu. This is just one of the campus mysteries we’ll solve in a fall story.

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.
