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.”

Hey there, hep cats. 

The Beloit College Jazz Ensemble will be playing Suds O'Hanahans at 6 p.m. tonight (Friday); think of it as a preview to Monday nights double-billing with the Beloit College Wind Ensemble, back up the hill at campus.

On Monday, Nov. 22, 2010, at 7:30 p.m., in Eaton Chapel, the Wind Ensemble, directed by Glenn Wilfong, will open another concert; the band is a large ensemble composed of wind, brass and percussion instruments played by students, faculty, staff and musicians from surrounding communities.

The Jazz Ensemble, directed by John Meyers, will follow that night with a selection of big band jazz, blues and swing. Selections include classics such as “Pick Up the Pieces” by Average White Band, featuring senior Greta Keister on tenor sax and freshman Christopher Bunkers on drums, and  ”Sidewinder” by Lee Morgan, featuring Glenn Wilfong on trumpet and senior James Jobb on drums.
