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 occasion of 80th birthday, M-I gets an upgrade

September 15, 2010 at 7:27 am

The physical plant at Beloit will soon begin replacing the roof on Morse-Ingersoll Hall-- a roof the team over in Smith Building believes may be more than 80 years old (MI was dedicated Oct. 20, 1930). Work is slated to begin the week of September 27, immediately following reunion.

The project, which will replace the entire roof, has been pending while waiting for specific roofing material to materialize, a budget line to become available, and while coordinating the start and completion with the contractor. With all now squared away - and with construction winding down on the College and Emerson Street expansions, and only two more weeks to go on the library and Eaton Chapel projects -- the roof is getting razed and rebuilt.

The whole project is expected to take just 5 or 6 weeks. With any luck, the whole affair will be over in time for the first snow fall.

Stay tuned. Oh -- and watch where you're walking!
