Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

Hendricks Center Tonight: pizza, professors, music and prizes

August 22, 2010 at 4:56 pm

The doors to the Hendricks Center for the Arts will be propped open and the campus invited in at 5 p.m. tonight (immediately following convocation). Faculty, staff, and students are invited downtown for pizza and a first look at the newly finished, 58,000-square-foot classroom and small performance facility.

Hendricks CenterPolished original terrazzo floors in the main floor lobby will reflect a floating ceiling “cloud” that leads visitors back toward two modern dance studios. Elsewhere, hallway study nooks will boast Ethernet hookups and street views through the former library’s distinctive, double-paned exterior windows. 

The Hendricks Center for the Arts was a gift made possible through the generosity of Diane Hendricks, chair of ABC Supply of Beloit, and her late husband Ken Hendricks, a longtime college trustee.

The event, which replaces the Welcome Back Picnic, will run from 5 p.m. to 7 the Hendricks Center parking lot and will feature entertainment by the Chicago Afrobeat Project. Inside the building, music and dance faculty and staff will be on hand to introduce you to their new classroom, studio, office, and performance spaces. There’ll be prizes, too, the likes of which could keep you well-fed (gift certificates to favorite local restaurants) and well-read (five $100 gift-cards for Turtle Creek Bookstore)!

In case of inclement weather, this welcome-back celebration will be held in Commons.
