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.”

Bookstore brimming with new ‘B’ apparel

January 4, 2011 at 5:21 pm

 

How do you spell Beloit pride? One letter, one big letter: B.

Beloit ornamentTurtle Creek Bookstore recently started carrying a whole line of items branded with the letter, including mugs, pens, t-shirts, caps, and even a holiday snowflake ornament, which apparently sold like hotcakes—there was only one left on the shelf Tuesday afternoon.

“It was the best-selling (ornament) this year,” said Peter Fronk, the bookstore’s manager. And there’s more coming to the store soon. “We have plans for stickers, and we want to do a pennant with it, for sure. You’ll see it on more and more stuff.

It may be just one simple letter, but really it could stand for any number of Beloit-y things: our Bucs, Beloit College, or even our president, who purportedly is a fan of the newly designed baseball cap emblazoned with the big ‘b.’

Fronk is happy about the new, streamlined design, and credits the athletic department with helping to pump up Beloit pride this past year.

“There’s more school spirit than ever, I think,” he said.

p.s., If you’re in need of a new calendar for the new year, various versions (including the ever-popular Moleskine) are currently 50 percent off at the bookstore—60 percent, if you flash your faculty/staff I.D.
