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.”

FAC/STAFF: RSVP today for tomorrow's Faculty Forum

August 31, 2010 at 10:10 am


The first  faculty forum of the 2010-11 academic year will be held on Wednesday, September 1, 2010 at 12:30 p.m. in Mathers, as Assistant Professor of English Fran Abbate presents "Under the Influence."

"I’ve been an avid, if amateur, fan of Geoffrey Chaucer’s long poem “Troilus and Criseyde” since reading it for a graduate school seminar, so I wasn’t too surprised when, a couple years ago, I found myself writing a few poems based on his characters," Abbate said. "I was, however, surprised to realize the project had turned into a book-length manuscript that continues to absorb me. I’ll briefly discuss Chaucer’s poem—at the heart of which is a betrayal critic C.D. Lewis considered so devastating no reader “without reluctance reads it twice”—and its history.  I’ll also discuss the challenges I’ve been facing in retelling the story (which I’ve set in Troy, WI, naturally!) before reading a selection of poems from the manuscript."

Hot buffet lunch will be available for $3.00 beginning at noon.  To assure a proper count, please RSVP to Csilla Macsari by noon today (Tues.) (email: macsaric, or call extension 2263).
