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.”

MEET: Round Table editor Mary Keister

October 7, 2010 at 3:00 pm


Mary KeisterName: Mary Keister.
Hometown and current residence:
Vernon Hills, Ill., but currently rocking 840 as the RA.
Year in school:
Campus activities:
Editor-in-chief of the Round Table, Intramural Frisbee, senior class officer, ResLife, and other various fun things!
What goes in your desert island backpack?
How big is this backpack? Can it hold a miniature poodle or just, say, the seeds of an apple tree? We'll go with the seeds. I love apples (and even more so when they are in pie).
If you were to audition for American Idol, what song would you sing?
"Born to Run" by Bruce Springsteen. BRUUUUUCE!
Who are your heroes?
There's many of these in a lot of different realms of my life, but I'll say Helen Thomas here. (see photo above, with Thomas, left and Keister, right) Even though sometimes she says some silly things, she's always been someone I've admired. Plus, I would love to have her as a great-aunt or something. How cool would that be?!
If you could go back in time and cover any news story, what would it be?
The emergence of the Iraq War. Most reporters kind of goofed on that and didn't ask the questions they should have been asking.
Describe your dream issue of the Round Table.
A masterpiece full of color photos and punny headlines! (Unfortunately, as of now, the color piece can't happen. ... unless someone wants to give us money ... )
