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.”

Randomly generated bands to play Song-a-Thon

November 3, 2010 at 3:57 pm


The First Annual Song-a-Thon is coming to C-Haus this weekend!

The 40 participating musicians received their new bandmates’ identities in their campus mailboxes Wednesday. Organizer Spencer Bible ’12 says members of Music Club were in great spirits as they randomly selected groups and decorated envelopes. The bands will have a total of 72 hours to write an original song for tomorrow's Song-a-Thon performance at C-Haus.

Most bands won’t reveal their identities until the big show. “It was hard keeping a few of the juicier groups to myself,” Bible says. “I honestly think every group will be a surprise. Just seeing some people next to each other will be a head trip.”

Songwriters were encouraged to sign up even if they can’t play an instrument, and the Song-a-Thon has no length, content, or theme requirements – the only rule for what you’ll see at C-Haus on Friday, then, is that anything goes.

“It’s just a great concept,” Bible says. “People get together with new personalities, meet in the middle, make a song, and show it off. Beloit is such a small campus that most people will know all the faces on that stage. It’s an experiment in context, in new associations.”

The Song-a-Thon begins at 9 p.m. Friday (Nov. 5) at the C-Haus.
