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.”

DIRT ALERT: Campus construction update

September 7, 2010 at 9:33 am

The main sidewalk between the Smith parking lot and the President’s House is being prepared for new cement.  The actual pouring of cement should happen Tuesday (Sept. 7) if the weather holds out; the pouring the infrastructure for the library steps. 

“It’s like building blocks,” says Physical Plant Director Michael Brady. “You have to place one on top of the other and you cant place the one on top until the one below it dries.” The circle is starting to talk shape, as workers poured the concrete for the inner circle, which is also a seat wall.  The circle’s outer ring will be formed early this week, when the landscaping around Emerson will also begin.

As of last Friday, the demolition of the walks should be finished with the exception of the parking lot behind 609 College Street.  A a new sidewalk that has been poured between Emerson and the Library.

A reminder on the mounds: The Wisconsin State Historical Society requires us to continue to protect the effigy mounds and preserve college history by fencing in the effigy mounds. This restriction will be in place for the duration of the construction process. 

And, as always, “We appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation during this time,” Brady says.
