real world EXPERIENCE
Since the college’s founding, Beloiters have used the world around us as a classroom.
We believe people learn best by doing
A global college
Beloiters think globally, and always have. That perspective is reflected in our curriculum, campus programming, and student body — and in every nook and cranny of this place. We’re a residential and inclusive campus that welcomes diversity from across the country and the world. We embrace ways of knowing and experiences from global and local perspectives. It’s what brings us together as a community.
The recipe for success
Embedded in every experience at Beloit are opportunities for students to be effective communicators, creative problem solvers, productive collaborators, and intellectually and professionally agile.
More than ‘Midwest nice’
Beloit’s close-knit community means open-door policies, more mentors than mascots, support for people of diverse backgrounds, traditions that run deep, and unexpected connections with people and places beyond campus.
Made in Wisconsin, serving the world
There are more than 16,000 Beloit alumni around the globe. They are writers, scientists, lawyers, and CEOs; fundraisers and financiers; artists and actors; smoke-jumpers and small business owners.
They’re the kind of people who have a clear sense of purpose and the agility to thrive in any career. They make a difference throughout their lives — because they can’t imagine doing it any other way.
