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.”

FAC/STAFF: First Faculty@4 of the semester

September 23, 2010 at 9:08 am

 

The college’s first Faculty @ 4 of the semester will take place today (Thursday) in the Weeks Lounge of Pearsons Hall. Robin Zebrowski has taken over the conceptual organization of the series, and we will see an interesting new approach: each reading will have two discussion leaders from different divisions. We start with the essay "Natural/Artificial," which can be found on the VPAA website at this link https://www.beloit.edu/academicaffairs/campuscontent/. Tamara Ketabgian and Britt Scharringhausen will lead the discussion.

 “Natural/ Artificial” is an essay written in 1938 by Dolf Sternberger, an influential German philosopher, political scientist, and cultural critic. Combining literary and scientific approaches, Sternberger explores various natural and artificial metaphors used for the steam engine, the human body, the conservation of energy, and—especially—“work” in the nineteenth century. For Thursday’s conversation, the discussion leaders are most interested in how this essay raises questions about the different disciplinary ways in which we seek to 1) know the world and 2) express that world through different methods and languages.
