Beloit College Reviews
Beloit is a nice, small school located in southern Wisconsin. Students are really friendly here, food is decent, diversity is pretty high, and professors are great!
Decent academics, bad campus culture, atomized social life, food makes you sick. I think this college could be revitalized by its students but no one is willing to collaborate or mobilize, the administration is noncommunicative and currently gutting the amenities and facilities, constantly building vanity projects (which are conveniently built by a board-member owned construction firm). The food is so bad that you might as well not eat during finals bc you'll get sick and it'll make working harder. This school would work better if it were to just make incremental improvements and attempt to involve the student body.
Definitely not the school for everyone, but for me, it was perfect. I graduated as a philosophy major and the small class sizes and the tight-nit academic community was exactly what I needed to succeed. The thing I loved most about going here was that the learning didn’t stop after class was over. In the dorms, at commons, on walks in between classes, students discussed and debated the class material non-stop. Such a wonderful academic environment. If you’re looking for a good party scene or fun local culture, don’t go to Beloit. But for me, my friends and academics made it worth it.
