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.”

National Hispanic Heritage Month at Beloit College

September 20, 2010 at 3:30 pm

National Hispanic Heritage Month began as a week-long observation designated by Congress in 1968 under President Lyndon Johnson. In 1988, Congress designated a full month (Sept. 15 - Oct. 15) to Hispanic Heritage Month.
The day of Sept. 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrated their independence days on Sept. 16 and Sept. 18, respectively.  Also, Dia de la Raza, which is on Oct. 12, falls within the 30-day period.
Beloit College is proud to celebrate Hispanic - Latino/a Heritage Month by raising awareness, providing education, and holding celebratory activities to honor the histories, cultures and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.
Please join in celebrating this years national theme Heritage, Diversity, Integrity and Honor. Details of events will be posted to the Intercultural Affairs  web site ( ) each week.
 Until then... mil gracias y felicidades!
