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.”

College dancers performing in Chicago this weekend

September 30, 2010 at 11:23 am


Chelonia Dance, Beloit College’s dance company, has been selected to perform a new work choreographed by professor Chris Johnson at the inaugural Harvest Chicago Contemporary Dance Festival at the Ruth Page Center for the Arts on Friday, Oct. 1. Tickets for the festival, which runs from Oct. 1 to Oct. 3, are $20 general admission and $16 for students and seniors, and can be purchased from the Ruth Page Theater box office at 312-337-6543, or online at

The piece to be performed by Chelonia Dance is a collaboration between professor Chris Johnson, winner of the James R. Underkofler Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching in 2002, and Beloit alumna Joan Truckenbrod’67, video sculpture artist and faculty member at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. The dance focuses on environmental and sustainability issues, and explores the dichotomy of the damage and the benefit that large populations acting in concert can bring about.

The Harvest Chicago Contemporary Dance Festival was founded in 2010 as a way to share and celebrate the work of practicing contemporary dance artists and companies. Producers Nicole Gifford and Melissa Mallinson have a combined 20 years of experience in producing dance events, choreographing, and performing their works in Chicago and throughout the Midwest.

Since auditions on Sept. 4, Beloit College dancers have rehearsed under a grueling schedule to have the piece performance-ready by the festival. The choreography will also be performed at Chelonia, the annual Beloit College dance exhibition, held on campus on Feb 3-6, 2011, as well as at the American College Dance Festival Association's (ACDFA) regional conference at St. Olaf University in Northfield, MN in March, 2011.
