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.”

What can you do with an English degree? Well...

October 25, 2010 at 5:00 pm


Here are three examples of English majors in varying careers:


Jim Simon'77, left and Paul Fishstein'76 visited campus last week to talk about their careers in journalism and international relations, respectively; both were English majors, and former students of Gayle and William Keefer Professor of the Humanities Tom McBride.

Simon was on campus to talk about the future of journalism, fresh off a Pulitzer win for breaking news--he's the assistant managing editor for the Seattle Times. Paul Fishstein’76, a fellow with Harvard’s Carr Center for Human Rights, has served as the director of the Afghanistan Research and Evaluation Unit (AREU), a Kabul-based policy research institution, and spoke to the campus last week about his work and situation in Afghanistan.
