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.”

Majeed to address convocation on MLK Day

January 9, 2011 at 8:06 pm


When it hosts its sixth annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Convocation on next Monday (Jan. 17) the college will, for the first time, be asking one of its own to honor and examine the life and legacy of the legendary civil rights leader.

majeedDebra Majeed, associate professor and chair of philosophy and religious studies at Beloit College, will deliver a speech titled “Imagine Better: A 21st-Century Response to the ‘Dream’ of King” at 4 p.m. in the college’s Eaton Chapel.

Majeed, a religious historian (and the first African American female and first Muslim to be tenured at Beloit College) is the only college faculty member to lead the annual convocation, which began in 2005. The convocation brings the community together the third Monday of every January to reflect on the condition of equal rights in this country and on the life of Dr. King. Last year’s speaker was Regina M. Prude of Beloit, founder of New Directions Management Services, Inc.

Community leaders and elected officials will be in attendance, and the Beloit Community Ministers’ Fellowship Youth Choir will also be performing during the public ceremony.
