Founded in 1846 by two Yale men, Beloit is Wisconsin’s oldest college, and one that has long been a national leader in the delivery of a rigorous, innovative, and rewarding liberal arts and sciences education. Beloit routinely appears as a “best value” in U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review, and is heralded as one of the “Colleges That Change Lives” by the late author and former New York Times education editor Loren Pope. Beloit draws students from 49 of the 50 U.S. states and nearly 40 foreign countries. Located on the Wisconsin-Illinois stateline, the college is easily reached from O’Hare Airport, downtown Chicago, and Madison, Wisconsin, by a convenient and inexpensive bus service.
Nestled in a quaint Midwestern town, Beloit fosters a welcoming environment for international students. Located two hours outside of Chicago, Beloit is a smaller college, where students who want to connect with other students, faculty, and the campus in a more intimate setting often feel at home.
