School Overview

As its name suggests, Beliot College is name after the city where it was established and currently resides, Beloit, Washington. Beloit was founded in 1846 by Friends for Education a group of seven pioneers from New England. While Beloit wasn’t the first college to be established in Wisconsin, it holds the record for having operated continuously longer than any other higher education institution in the state. Though Beloit was first affiliated with the Congregationalist tradition (Protestant Christianity), today the college is an independent, nonsecarian institution.

With just over 1,300 students and a staff of 95, Beloit is considered a small to mid-size college. For nearly the first 100 years of its existence the college never surpassed 1,000 students. The college operates on a two-semester academic year.

Beloit College offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in various field of study and has exceptionally strong geology and anthropology programs. Most Beloit graduates have gone on to earn their Ph.D. in anthropology than those at any other independent American liberal arts college.
