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.”

It’s election day in Wisconsin – do you know how to find your polling place? Or how to register once you get there?

If you’re a student, chances are you’ll want to head to the basement of First Congregational Church at 801 Bushnell St., just a block away from campus on the corner of Church and Bushnell streets. If you live off campus, or are a faculty or staff member living in Beloit, visit the city’s website to determine your ward and polling place.

The state of Wisconsin also offers online information about how to find your polling place at its Voter Public Access website.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Beloit City Clerk Carol Alexander says voters should “be prepared to wait.”

Wisconsin has same-day voter registration, meaning that if you’re not voting absentee in your home state, you can register right at the polls, here in Beloit. For Beloit College students, this means all you need to bring to the polls is your Beloit College I.D, Alexander says. “We have the Beloit College certified list from the Registrar’s Office,” she added. Poll workers will check the name on your I.D. against that official list. Remember: every time you change addresses (if you move off campus, or want to vote absentee in your home state) you will need to re-register.

So: you know where to vote, and how to register, but do you know for whom you want to cast your ballot? The Beloit College Democrats and Beloit College Republicans have thrown their bipartisan support behind the League of Women Voter’s Guide to the 2010 Beloit Elections.

And, of course, if you take a picture of yourself with your "I Voted" sticker, or have a photo of yourself working on election day, send it to us at terrarium@beloit.edu -- we'd love to see it.
