Another major development for the center of the city/college. The old electric generating plant on the riverside is going to undergo a $30,000,000 transformation by Jeanne Gang, arguably one of the nation's hottest architects. As a former student at the College, this just blows my mind. Money of course must be raised, hope it comes to fruition. To have an old power plant transformed into a student center by an architect of her stature would be fantastic.

In my memory this building was a horrible eyesore blocking the hillside campus from the river, physically and spiritually. To see it transformed by Gang would be tremendous

Beloit College is perhaps the best thing going for the city. And if you can find a good job in Beloit, a decent house can be bought for a song. Crime is not quite as bad as in other similar cities in the Midwest. Rockford IL for example has much greater social issues to confront. Janesville is not too far away and is wealthier, but it does not have nearly as much diversity as Beloit, nor is it as scenic.
