Founded in 1846, Beloit College is the oldest college in the state of Wisconsin. A nationally ranked liberal arts college, Beloit is located just a short drive away from three major cities, where our students frequently intern and land their first jobs; our campus is 90 mi. northwest of Chicago. Beloitersapply the concepts they learn inside the classroom, outside of it, through internships, field work, study abroad, summer programs, entrepreneurial projects, lab-based courses, etc. It means that by the time they graduate, they will have built a professional resume, not just an academic transcript. We are home to students from almost every American state and 22% of our community represents over 40 different countries.
Beloit College's small class sizes and innovative flexible curriculum have been designed to encourage individual students' growth. Our faculty are incredible scholars who love to teach and mentor students, pushing them to live up to their full potential and build remarkable careers. The Higher Education Data sharing consortium ranks Beloit in the top 10% for producing future P.h.D. students.
Beloiters have access to 60+ clubs and organizations. With 1,000+ on-campus events per year, Beloit College is an exciting place to be. Every year the college welcomes as many as seven distinguished individuals to campus to perform or present, teach and work with students, engage with faculty, as well as live on campus.
One third of our students graduate with a double major, there is no additional charges to pursue two courses. It is also common for students to pursue a minor in a secondary discipline. This makes our graduates stand out in today's increasingly complex job market.
Beloit College's campus is made up of state-of-the-art facilities like the LEED-certified Sanger Center for the Sciences, a cutting-edge building with classrooms and laboratory spaces designed to encourage interdisciplinary learning, critical for today’s science students to take a leadership role in 21st century science. New this year is The Powerhouse, a $38 million sustainable student union, recreation center, and athletics facility for Beloiters. The Powerhouse is a first-of-its-kind health and recreation facility and has already won several awards for best future building.
