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.”

A celebration of spirituality

September 1, 2010 at 4:26 pm

Spirit Fest hits Chapin Quad this Saturday, Sept. 4 from 12:30-4 p.m.

"This year we're starting off with a party,” says Bill Conover, director of the Spiritual Life Program. “A celebration of the myriad ways people express their spirituality here at Beloit.”

With a full slate of performances and workshops and booths representing all the spiritual and religious student clubs on campus, Spirit Fest promises to be the best opportunity all semester for new students and returners alike to discover where they might connect. 

"For performers, we've got everything from belly dancing and a martial arts demo to student bands, modern dancers and Professor Fran Abbate and Devon Armstrong'12 reading some of their poetry," says Conover.  “We’re guessing other folks will be inspired to show off their spiritual expressions, too, so we’re leaving open a nice window of time for open mike.”

Students will also be able to stroll among the booths of such longstanding clubs as Pagan Fellowship, Am Yisrael-Hillel, Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Interfaith Club, and also chat with a group of Muslim students just getting organized and the brand new Secular Student Alliance.  Other booths will feature tarot readings, massage, and information about a host of upcoming activities and small groups sponsored by the Spiritual Life Program.  Rounding the afternoon out will be workshops where participants will be able to try out T’ai Chi and yoga, learn about astrology, and talk with Fran Abbate and Devon Armstrong about spirituality and poetry.
