Back at Beloit

A Safe, Sensible and Smart Return to Campus

We're getting back to business. Safely.
(And chemistry. And literature. And political science.)

Spring Semester 2021 will start February 15

To avoid a predicted post-holiday COVID surge, overlapping a return to campus with the height of flu season, and provide a safer and richer student experience, we’ve moved our Spring Semester start date.

Changing our academic calendar in this way, and including a mix of in-person and hybrid learning, gives us a good shot at more in-person instruction as we bypass the coldest winter weeks. It also gives our entire community a much-needed extended break.

New Career Accelerator

The College is planning a robust two-week Career Accelerator program for students from Jan. 25-Feb. 5 to help them identify, prepare for, and apply for internships, jobs, and other career-related opportunities. Students will be able to attend remote site visits, network with panelists, and receive resume reviews and advice from a host of talented alumni and business professionals.

We’ll post the schedule when it becomes available.

We’re all in this together

As everyone adjusts to the changes across campus including dorm rules, dining protocols, classroom etiquette, and health checks, we’re supporting each other like Beloiters always do.

Campus Alert Status

Our students have done well in adhering to their Statement of Culture and Behavioral Expectations that mandated masks, physical distancing, and small group gatherings to keep COVID cases low and allow them to remain on campus. Students were widely praised in national media outlets for their mature, proactive approach to the pandemic.
