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.”

GLBT and Christian?! Why Not?

September 29, 2010 at 10:44 am


Who says being GLBT and Christian have to be mutually exclusive?

The Rev. Tisha Brown, pastor of Community of Hope United Church of Christ in Madison will explain, "how I've come to embrace who I am as a lesbian, disciple of Jesus, pastor, woman and partner" tonight at 7 p.m., in the Moore Lounge of Pearsons Hall. There will be time for dialogue with the Rev. Brown after her talk.

Faith and Reason is a new series sponsored by the Spiritual Life Program. The old Latin motto of Beloit College is Scientia Vera Cum Fide Pura, which means “true knowledge with pure faith.” The purpose of this series is to explore some of the many ways individuals bring the intellectual and spiritual, the rational and faithful together in their personal and academic lives at the college. 

Many at Beloit assume that reason and faith cannot coincide, that they are polar opposites, but others among us see no contradiction. Over the academic year the Spiritual Life Program will invite professors, students, and several speakers from off- campus to share how they incorporate faith and reason into their daily lives. The intention is to complicate the easy categorization of faith and reason as opposites, and to support the many Beloit College students who are already developing their own ways of uniting the intellectual and spiritual in their hearts and minds.
