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.”

Sen. Durbin, Congresswoman Baldwin on campus FRIDAY

October 5, 2010 at 4:50 pm


US Senator Dick Durbin on campus Friday to stump for Feingold

U.S. Senator and assistant majority leader Dick Durbin (D-IL) will be on campus Friday to advocate for early voting - and stump for fellow Democrat, incumbent U.S. Senate candidate Russ Feingold (D-WI) - at 2 p.m. in Richardson Hall in MI. Our local Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin (D), is also expected to be in attendance. 

The event is free and open to the campus community and public at large. The college regularly hosts candidates for political offices for appearances of this sort as a service to the campus and local community. This time around, it was a Beloit connection that instigated the event. The visit was arranged by Beloit alumnus Mark Spreitzer'09, who is working for the Feingold office.

An invitation to host a similar event on campus has been extended to Feingold's opponent in the November election, Republican Ron Johnson.

Also on the campaign front: Two Beloit students recently organized an on-campus debate between the two candidates vying for the 45th District seat in the state assembly (a seat vacated by Chuck Benedict, husband of our own Nancy Benedict, vice president for enrollment services). Details are still coming together, but the event is planned for 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 21. Both Amy Loudenbeck (R) and Roger Anclam (D) are expected to attend.
