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.”

VIDEO: McManus reads from 'Cowboys Full'

November 2, 2010 at 4:43 pm


Though James McManus told a Beloit audience that his newest book contains no "strippers, kinky sex, poker, and heroin," as did Positively Fifth Street, or nitty-ditty details about his colonoscopy, as in Physical: An American Checkup, it does contain "verve and knowledge," according to a review in the New York Times.

McManus, this year's Lois Wilson Mackey '45 Distinguished Professor of Creative Writing, read from Cowboys Full: The Story of Poker in September at Beloit College. His reading covered excerpts from the book's first four chapters; if you missed it, you can now see the reading on Vimeo.
