    I absolutely love Beloit College. I spend more time talking to my Beloit friends than I do my friends from High School. I almost, almost hate going on breaks because I'm away from school for an extended period of time and I don't like it.

    True, it's a small town and a small school. We party hard on weekends and study even harder during the week. There are still lots of opportunities during the week for movies and talks, and on the weekend there are parties [open to anyone, a great perk compared to other schools I've heard of], improv shows, adventuring [as my friends like to call it] to parks, movies, etc. If you're not into drinking/partying, there are other people here that feel the same! I am still very close with the people I lived with last year and am a lot more involved in a few of the ton of clubs we have here. Over all, it's a great place to form close bonds and explore different interests with unique people.

    This is really what made me decide to leave this school. There was never much activity going on around campus. Sure, there were parties on the weekend, but I felt like all the parties were pretty much the same thing, and I found it kind of boring. If you like getting drunk and going to dance parties, than this would be your kind of place. Apart from that, there wasn't much else to do. The town of Beloit was really depressing and not very safe. The campus feels small really fast and it feels like people form cliques really fast and stick to hanging out with the people they know. I did join a few clubs and I didn't feel like the people I met there were especially friendly either. Overall, I found the atmosphere very boring and claustrophobic.

    I may be a little biased because I technically wasn't supposed to go to Beloit, and yet I ended up here anyway. You can find virtually any type of person on campus, despite there being only 1200 kids. The atmosphere is, for the most part, great - however Beloit does have some flaws that you have to be willing to look past to make the most out of your experience here. Alcohol is very prevalent, the surrounding town is a very big let-down, there's no air in some of the dorms, no wireless in the dorms, and the food can be pretty bad at times - however, if you are able to look past the surface scratches you'll find that everyone here is unique (plenty of International students hanging around - I have a friend from Afghanistan and my roommate is from Senegal), and everyone is very willing to help you. Oh, and 99% of the professors go by their first name, despite the fact that almost all of them are doctors. It's weird to think of them as Professor Smith or Dr. Smith and not simply just John.

    There are so many great people here! Though there are some people that you might not get along with all the time, college is like its own, separate world. You only really have to be around the people you enjoy spending your time with. Also, it's not difficult at all to find new people. There are so many opportunities to meet new people, especially a wide variety of clubs and organizations.
