Son and I visited in April, about 6 mos. after 10% layoff. We did not get the sense that there was any out of the ordinary financial problems. We asked and were told that the layoff actually brought Beloit staffing in line with comparable colleges. Stuents said little to no impact on class size or availability or other programs that affect them directly. It may be that Beloit was a bit more proactive and up front about what it was doing. I know that schools in my area (New England) are cutting, they just don't talk about it. I don't think Beloit is any worse of than a lot of similar LACs.
