Beta of Wisconsin History


The Beloit College 168th commencement will take place on Sunday, May 20 beginning at 11 a.m. CST. We are planning to hold the ceremony outside. At the moment, the weather looks to be a bit chilly with a chance of rain, so please plan on bringing an umbrella. More information about the ceremony and full schedule of events is available on the commencement website. Also, for those unable to attend, we will live stream the ceremony at, and the recording will be made available via our YouTube channel after the event has ended. 

Congratulations to the Beloit College Class of 2018!
