Beloit College has once again been named one of the nation's best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features Beloit in the new 2015 edition of its annual college guide, The Best 379 Colleges, which was released today (Aug. 5.) 

This year, Beloit earned the No. 19 spot for most accessible professors and No. 19 for best science lab facilities. Opened in the fall of 2008, the Center for the Sciences is a 116,000 square-foot, four-story, LEED-certified building. It contains labs, classrooms, common areas, student and faculty offices, the 60-seat Porter Brown Auditorium, and the Keefer Kang Conference Room, which offers international video-conferencing capabilities.

In a "Survey Says” sidebar in the book's profile on Beloit, The Princeton Review lists topics that Beloit students agreed on most in their answers to survey questions. The list includes:

  • Students are happy
  • Lab facilities are great
  • Great financial aid
  • No one cheats
  • Students are friendly
  • Diverse student types on campus

According to The Princeton Review, one student said “Beloit College is a small, liberal arts institution with ‘phenomenal academics’ where ‘people are committed to their work out of passion, not out of pressure.’” Another said, “It’s more about the community than competitiveness.”

The Princeton Review compiles its rankings based on a national survey of 130,000 students (about 343 per campus on average) attending the colleges.
