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.”

Something got left on the presidential stoop...

wand 

President Scott Bierman, otherwise known as the resident of the "House next to the library," got an unexpected package over the weekend-- an acceptance letter. It seems Beloit's 11th president is no mere muggle. He's been accepted into "Beloit's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry." And what comes with an acceptance letter to such a prestigious program? Well a wand, of course-- and a very convincing one at that.

In the photo above, the newly outfitted wizard shows off his acceptance letter, which includes the signatures of a host of living and dead Hogwarts staff, including the late, great Albus Dumbledore. President Bierman has apparently had no luck with any spells as of yet, though there are rumors he may be harboring a super power or two.
