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: RSVP for Monday's "Thinking with Numbers"

September 23, 2010 at 9:11 am

 

If you plan to attend Monday's "Thinking with Numbers" session (the fourth and final session; invite copied below) and haven't yet replied, please take a moment to do so now by emailing grosofsk@beloit.edu. Be sure to indicate your sandwich choice as well as your preference for chips or pretzels in your message.

Session 4: Monday, Sept. 27, 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in SC 349 (room change!)

 

Continuing the Conversation:  Where do we go from here?

 During the last session faculty members shared ways to visualize data and emphasized the idea that it’s important to design good assignments so the visualizations are not just “dazzling,” but also meaningful. The presentations and other suggested sites will once again be posted to our Moodle site (“Thinking with Numbers” (listed as a PSYC course https://moodle.beloit.edu/course/category.php?id=18).  

In this final session of the series we will start to brainstorm about where to go from here. We will discuss what we want students to be able to do when they enter Beloit, when they leave Beloit, how we get there from here, and how we know that our students are developing the skills and abilities we think they should. We’ll also consider whether we think using a developmental model is a good idea (e.g., beginning, mid-level, and upper-level quantitative experiences).

Whether you can attend or not, if you have topics you think we should be sure to include in our discussion, please send them along to Alexis Grosofsky at grosofsk@beloit.edu.

Once again, sandwiches will be provided by Atlanta Bread Company courtesy of our Teagle grant.  Please indicate your choice of sandwich when you RSVP:  turkey, ham, chicken salad, tuna salad, roast beef, or veggie. Also, please indicate whether you prefer pretzels or chips.

We hope to see you there.
