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.

Beloit College is in a really small town where there isn't much to do. Beloit has a somewhat toxic atmosphere where a lot of people are depressed and upset with the administration. Admin often fails to act promptly when it comes to hate crimes, dorm quality and fails to listen to the voice of the students. The food at commons is subpar. If you're looking for a party school this is not it. Beloit is a laid back school. Most parties consist of small kickbacks and occasionally there are greek life parties but they aren't huge.

The only other great thing about Beloit are the professors. With small classes sizes, you get the chance to build a close relationship.

Overall Beloit is the place for you're ok with the following
-Small town's
-PWI
-No school spirit
-Bad food
-C+ party scene
-Ok with the occasional hate crime
-Snow
-Mediocre athletics
-Small greek presence
We visited Beloit on a Open House Saturday and came away very impressed. The campus is pretty, the plans for the new student center look incredible, and our tour guide was straightforward and encouraging. My daughter is a vegan and was very pleasantly surprised by the number of tasty and healthful options in the dining hall. We talked to an absolutely lovely, thoughtful, and engaging student who was not part of the admission team to get her take on the school. She said that she had been completely transformed by her experience there--that she has turned into a person who loves to learn. Before Beloit, she was only interested in taking classes as a means of getting to the next step.
