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.”

Beloit College recognizes Jewish High Holidays and Muslim Eid

September 8, 2010 at 2:03 pm

Jewish and Muslim students, faculty and staff will very soon be observing some of the most important holidays in their respective traditions.  Please be mindful of their celebrations.

For Jews, the Ten Days of Awe begin with Rosh Hashanah at sunset today, September 8th, and conclude with Yom Kippur on Friday-Saturday, September 17-18th.  Rosh Hashanah, which lasts through tomorrow,  is the new year in the Jewish calendar.  Yom Kippur, also called the Day of Atonement, is focused on repentance and forgiveness in order to re-establish oneness with God; it starts at sunset on Friday, September 17th and goes through Saturday, September 18th.  There are restrictions against work for both of these holidays, along with some food restrictions and special worship throughout.
For Muslims, Eid al-Fitr, the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, will occur starting at sundown tomorrow, September 9th.  While there are work restrictions this day, the focus is on joyous celebration of this Feast of the Breaking of the Fast.

If you would like to know more, ask a Jewish or a Muslim friend.  Or go to the Spiritual Life Program website.

If you are Jewish and would like information about local religious services, go to the website of  Congregation B'nai Abraham in Beloit or of the Jewish Federation of Rockford. If you would like a ride from campus to services in Beloit, please contact Regina Willensky, President of Beloit’s Am Yisrael-Hillel club.
