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.”

The sitcoms of an ancient Roman playwright

October 22, 2010 at 3:26 pm


Christopher Bungard of the Classics Program at Butler University will give a public lecture on ancient Roman playwright Plautus at 7:30 p.m. Monday in the Science Center's Porter Brown Auditorium (150).

Plautus lived in the second century BC and adapted Greek comedies for a Roman audience. Professor Bungard's talk will examine how Plautus borrowed from a well-worn genre (the situation comedy) where young men inevitably fall in love with women they cannot have, where pimps, soldiers, and angry fathers thwart young love, where good social manners prevail over misanthropy, and where clever slaves pushed Romans to rethink their own identities.
