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: Riverside is again open

November 23, 2010 at 11:32 am


Under budget and ahead of schedule, the newly expanded Riverside Drive is now open. With the help of Jeff Adams, the Allen-Bradley Professor of Economics and one of the lead organizers of Beloit 2020, a local economic development organization, the city dedicated the new thoroughfare on Tuesday morning, Nov. 23, at 10 a.m.

More than $3.2 million in federal and state dollars went into the refurbishing of Highway 51 between Public Avenue and Henry Avenue. In addition to expanded parkways and parking along the city's eastern Rock River shoreline, the work included beautification to the riverfront, aided by research and designs provided by Beloit 2020.

In his remarks, Adams said...

What this means for campus: 

  • You can expect reduced traffic along Park and other north-south through streets now that Highway 51/Riverside is open again.
  • Staff and students accessing the backside of Flood Arena and the Smith Building (primarily physical plant) will again have open access.

What this also means:
Students heading down the hill to Nicki's Cafe, the Hendricks Center, CELEB, the bookstore, and other downtown destinations should remember to look both ways. What had become a quiet crossing street will be busy again.
