Description

Plenty of schools claim to focus on the individual, but at Beloit College it’s more than a claim: it’s a priority.

Beloit stresses the importance of diversity and encourages individuality in its student body. As a result, student life at Beloit has something for everyone, with more than 100 student organizations and over 15 special interest housing options.

Individuality is just as important in the classroom, too. Beloit College has a small student-to-faculty ratio, giving you the advantage of small class sizes and personalized instruction.

With nearly 20 departments, there’s no shortage of academics, either. From Art History to International Relations, the school features a wide range of concentrations. There are more than 50 fields of study, and because the school encourages interdisciplinary education, there’s plenty of room to explore.

The school also prides itself on financial aid. Eligible students at Beloit qualify for need-based aid, and several institutional scholarships are also available.

Many of these institutional scholarships are based on merit. For example, the Presidential Scholarship and Eaton Scholarship both use GPA and test scores as their main criteria.
