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.”

Engaging in international education: International Symposium day!

November 16, 2010 at 5:08 pm


Your friends, colleagues in the classroom, students, and fellow floormates have gone abroad and come back, and now they're itching to tell you about it. 

In order to do this, Beloit College dedicates an entire day every fall semester (with the calendar cleared of classes) to hearing about Beloiters' experiences and research undertaken while abroad. A sampling of the 2010 International Symposium presentations taking place today include:

  • "Creating Change in Cairo: Socio-political Constraints on Egyption NGOs"
  • "Man,  @#$% That Guy! An Exploration of the Manifestations of Exilic Response"
  • "Is This Normal? Cultural Misunderstandings in Japan"


And there's so much more: meditations on caligraphy and architecture and albinism, and even the lens turned inward, with research conducted by international students right here in our own Beloit backyard.

"The International Symposium is a terrific opportunity to see what Beloit College students are capable of learning and doing around the world," says Betsy Brewer, the college's director of International Education.

Also today: Ivan M. and Janice S. Stone Lecturer Alicia Ely Yamin will present "A Rights-based Approach to Health" at 8 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium.
