Summer Programs

Giving Day:  Today is Giving Day! Make a gift, spread the word, and show you're Proud to be Beloit!

There's a lot happening in the summer at Beloit College. Current Beloit students, as well as visiting students from other universities, motivated high school students, established and emerging professionals, and those looking for educational enrichment, live and learn on campus as part of three different residential programs: the Center for Language Studies immersive language program, the Center for Collections Care hands-on practical training courses for museum, library, archive and conservation professionals, and 3-week intensive Beloit Blocks. Beloit College students also have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of summer research programs.
