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.”

On poker, painting: Mackey Chair and Ginsberg Artist take to the stage tonight

September 15, 2010 at 9:33 am

If you love poker and writing or doughnuts and painting, you’re in luck: you won’t have to choose between the objects of your affection. (At least not tonight.)

This evening’s sweet slate of events starts with “Contradictions and Connections,” a lecture by 2010 Ginsberg Artist in Residence Emily Eveleth tonight at 7 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium of Morse-Ingersoll Hall. Eveleth will discuss her signature image, the jelly doughnut, as well as an overview of her work of the last few years and a brief exploration into the nature of looking.

The Ginsberg lecture will be followed by the Mackey reading at 8 p.m. in Moore Lounge of Pearsons Hall. 2010 Lois and Willard Mackey Chair in Creative Writing James McManus will read from Cowboys Full, his new nonfiction book on the history of poker. Best known for his memoirs of participating in the World Series of Poker, McManus has also published seven books of poetry and fiction.
