Dear Visiting Student,
Welcome to Beloit College! As an overnight visitor you will have the opportunity to experience the life of a Beloit student living in a residential hall. We hope experiencing our community will be valuable to you as you chose what school to attend.
As a guest at Beloit College, you are required to follow the same rules and regulations that current students are required to abide by. We ask that above all you not only enjoy your visit here, but act like an adult while doing so.
