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.”

The wait is finally over for the anthropology program!

August 25, 2010 at 7:46 am

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded Beloit College a $349,688 grant to renovate three lab spaces within the college’s department of anthropology and Logan Museum of Anthropology. The lab renovations will allow faculty, staff, students, and visiting researchers to more closely and securely study museum collections as well as materials on loan from other institutions.

The NSF grant was awarded as a part of a competitive, one-time program funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. In its application, the college noted that these renovations would allow Beloit to more fully “realize the potential of both its collections and its faculty.” The college was one of only a handful of grant recipients awarded funds in anthropology.

Three lab spaces will be renovated through this grant. The archaeology lab in the Godfrey anthropology building will be rebuilt to enhance its use as a general anthropology research space. Analytical and museum lab spaces in the Logan Museum will be updated to facilitate more specialized studies. Renovations are expected to begin October 1, with a completion date of January 2011.
