Student/faculty ratio

At Beloit, students don't just build a transcript, they build a resume. Guided by a "Liberal Arts in Practice" philosophy, students are challenged to apply what they learn inside the classroom to the outside world through internships, field work, and study abroad programs. Faculty are committed teachers and mentors, often including students in their latest research projects. Alums consistently validate that Beloit is a "college that changes lives." Older than the state of Wisconsin itself, the 171-year-old historic campus is situated in a beautiful residential setting - a community of 1,300 undergraduates from 49 states and more than 40 countries.


Beloit stands out for its commitment to teaching and then bringing to life what students learn through internships, labs in every major, and meaningful study abroad.
