Beloit College Reviews
Rating 3.61 out of 5 597 reviews
No air conditioning or heat in the dorm which makes it impossible to sleep! Administration does not care at all about this issue. Their best option is to sleep on the floor at a different dorm if there’s room? Library is under construction so no comfortable place to study. Food is terrible. Professors are not great. The community sits in their room to smoke or drink since there is nothing else to do. Go anywhere but here.
For international students, if Beloit is your final option, then go. If not, DON'T. The administration is irresponsible and ineffective, despite how much they showed this via marketing campaigns. They force you to attend meal plan while food options are the worst energy I ever put into my mouth. Professors are good but not motivated enough to advocate for betterment.
Beloit College was a great opportunity for me because I was able to get the small college experience I wanted while also being close to home. I am a sophomore and studio art major that chose Beloit College for its arts department and its artsy buzz around college campus and the friends i've made while attending.
Beloit College is not worth the investment. While some professors are dedicated to their job, there are others who hold prejudices and intentionally act mean. This creates a double-standard educational experience. The classes are small in size but biased, meaning that you won't have a chance to express different views from the majority. The student body lacks ambition and a career-oriented mindset, and instead, they are highly hypocritical and radical. They spend most of their time partying, gossiping, and using drugs like weed. Surprisingly, the dorms are filled with weed, and the security guards don't seem to care about what's happening. The food options are terrible and bland throughout the entire semester, with no effort from the administration to improve the situation. I was fortunate to have external connections that helped me start early with internship applications; otherwise, finding a good, traditional summer job to gain valuable experiences would be challenging.
I never thought I would get to have a normal college experience, but within just one semester at Beloit College, I have never felt so welcomed and encouraged to be in school.
I came to Beloit from the east coast in August of 2020, during the peak of the pandemic. Beloit was forced to offer many of its courses online but was quick to adapt with changing times and maintained their focus of keeping students safe. Outdoor pavilions were stationed around campus to allow for classes and students to meet in person. I knew from then on that Beloit was going to continually take care of its students. I am now a rising senior and am still satisfied with my choice of colleges. Beloit and its professors have continually looked out for me and put my best interests before their personal goals. I feel confident in applying to grad schools and taking my next steps because the professors and faculty have continually pushed me to advance and have guided me through difficult situations. Beloit is a good choice for a student that is willing to open themselves up for help and is willing to work hard to achieve their goals.
Overall my experience has been positive. I like how well you get to know your instructors with the smaller class sizes.
I have loved my experience here so far! The professors are amazing and are really here to help you become a better students and person. Also Beloit is known for giving very generous scholarships, which makes it easier to focus on studies instead of working to pay off loans.
I enjoy college. Since it's small, it allows for more one-on-one time with professors. As well, the university is very involved with its students. However, the college could work on the food options provided; besides that, it's a fantastic university with incredible opportunities and programs.
I transferred to Beloit College from Southern California in the Fall as a sophomore. Although I was really nervous to acclimate to a new school and make friends all over again, Beloit has really been a dream come true. Beloit students are very passionate about what they do and they’re so friendly. I’m still finding my people at Beloit but I think making friends takes time and at Beloit, I’m on the right track because everyone is so kind. It’s that Midwest niceness I guess. I think something that has made a huge difference is the academics at Beloit. Beloit professors are so invested in the success of students and the school offers so many opportunities for students to stand out in the community. To those who get accepted, I highly recommend taking Sex, Race, and Power with Dr. Sonya Maria Johnson in your first year. You will learn a lot and she has my heart for a reason. Go to the career center, they’re very informative and helpful! Good luck!
Overall, I've taken a liking to Beloit College because it has a lot that I'm looking for in a college campus. I took a tour of the campus and I can say that I could see myself studying there for the next four years. I appreciated the scenery and how cozy and comfortable the environment is. It's tailored to quite a few of my interests in sciences, and I'll be looking forward to seeing how I could further expand on my education in science at Beloit College.
Beloit College is an excellent school with a really beautiful campus! I love walking around campus admiring the beauty, not just student life but nature itself. Living here is an experience in involvement and academic exploration. As for student life, I am also part of the Track and Field Team at Beloit College. The amazing support from Coach Bliese and Coach Ellie, the support from leadership captains and the overall sense of inclusion on the Track and Field Team as we push through practices and meets is such an amazing feeling. I recommend this school to everyone, and it's a great choice for those looking for an amazing education.
Overall, it's a good school. You'll probably need to adjust to some parts of life on Campus, but most of the professors are highly knowledgeable and their subject matters and if you put yourself out there, you can always find something to do on campus.
The one aspect of Beloit that I love the most is the way that they are diversified with students from all over the world. I've met people from completely different backgrounds than me and have learned tremendously from their experiences.
People with autism be aware of this school, this school is highly ableist. If you are short on money and looking for on-campus employment, you must be cautious, some employers have prejudices and will make discriminatory decisions against you. Please choose wisely on college and DO NOT COME TO THE ABLEIST SCHOOL.
Its been great! The people are honestly what makes being there worth it all. If you ask any college kid what's the best part they will say everything but actual class and this is true. But your professor will give you every opportunity to succeed. The class sizes are smaller which allows you to have more true connections with your classmates and your professors. You will meet people that will become your best friends, you will fit in with a group, but you will make multiple friends throughout your time here. The campus is small which makes finding your classes easier and they are also closer to the residential halls. Also with the new power house, it gives you so many activities to do when you are not studying!
Before coming and touring Beloit, I had my heart set on a big school. About halfway into my tour, I fell in love with Beloit. The campus was beautiful and everyone, both students and professors, was kind and supportive. If I had to go back and choose a college all over again, I would choose Beloit every time.
I loved Beloit since the first day. Everyone is extremely friendly, academics are exactly what I was looking for and all the staff is very approachable and helpful. One of my favorite things about Beloit, though, is its campus. It is very beautiful, in every season of the year. It has a lot of open spaces that allow us to connect with nature. Also, all the buildings are great and it is easy to move around. We have a lot of great places to have fun here, such as the Powerhouse, our student union, and Aldrich Field, where we always have a lot going on, like bonfires and festivals. Beloit is very connected to the surrounding community, which I love! One of my favorite buildings, CELEB, our Center for Entrepreneurship, is downtown and there's also the Boathouse by Rock River. To sum up, it's very pretty, comfy and exciting!
Though the college offers a great amount of money in terms of scholarships and loans, their dorms use a change. There are currently two buildings that do not include A/C. Only one has an elevator, and the doors are not wheelchair accessible. The meals could also use some improvement, but the desserts are amazing. They are currently working with their vegan and vegetarian options, and sometimes mislabeled the contents of food. The hours of the cafeteria are not bad but limited.
Beloit changed my life and the lives of my children. I wouldn't be where I am today without the mentorship of professors, academic rigor and challenge in the classroom, and support of my Beloit classmates. Their belief in me gave me the confidence to move boldly and decisively throughout my career and personal life. Liberal arts education is the best. I was taught how to communicate effectively, distill vast amounts of information, and teach myself anything, which, as it turns out, is a huge advantage in the information age.
