Being a Beloiter
When you’re a Beloiter, you try ideas on for size and see if they fit. You don’t expect cookie-cutter sameness in your friends. And you might even wear shorts and sandals in the bitter Wisconsin winter.
Interesting people wanted
Beloiters organize the annual Folk and Blues Festival and intern at an aviation software firm downtown. They take a $20 bill and turn it into a sustainable, globally inspired fashion business. They’re recruited to play football and end up falling in love with political philosophy.
Our normal is pretty extraordinary
When you’re comparing selective liberal-arts colleges, you’ll hear a lot about small classes, caring faculty, and rich educational experiences. Less common, unless you’re looking at Beloit, are:
- A curriculum that crushes barriers between town and gown through hundreds of hands-on learning opportunities
- The Powerhouse, a student union/athletic facility/recreation center in a decommissioned power plant that’s considered the world’s best future building
- An idea incubator/media studio/student-run art gallery called CELEB (the acronym will make sense once you get here!)
- Student research fellowships to test your theories or start your own business
- A student body in which 4 out of 10 students are minorities or from other countries
- A one-stop internship, community-service, and career-prep shop whose counselors also teach in first-year and capstone classes
- Immersive summer programs like Beloit Blocks and the Center for Language Studies that earn Beloiters credit in the off-season
- Two century-old teaching museums (the Wright Museum of Art and the Logan Museum of Anthropology) run by faculty, staff, and students
- Study-abroad programs that are less about tourism and more about getting your hands dirty
- 23 ancient Indian burial mounds on campus — protected historical sites that inspire some of our most beloved Beloit traditions
