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.”

FRIDAYS WITH FRED: President Chapin dodges "doughy bullets"

August 27, 2010 at 9:17 am

08_27_FwFAbove is a restored print of the earliest known photograph of Beloit College, taken in 1859; the college used etchings based on this image for publicity. At that time there were three college buildings, all standing today: South College, on the left, dedicated in April 1859, housed the Beloit Preparatory Department on its first floor and the college chapel on its second. 

At center, Middle College (1847) included administrative offices, classrooms and in its fourth floor attic, student living quarters. Just visible to the right is North College, known today as Campbell Hall, which served as dormitory and boarding club, the site of a notorious food fight in which students pelted President Aaron Lucius Chapin with inedible biscuits, described by George L. Collie, class of 1881, as “doughy bullets.”  The rail fence surrounding the campus provided protection from marauding livestock taking a shortcut on their way to market in downtown Beloit.
