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.”

MEET: Apple

In case you haven’t already met this (possibly cutest-ever) new Beloiter in this winter break feature, read her profile below.

puppy post 2 

Name: Apple
Occupation: OccuPaws Guide Dog in Training
Hometown/residence: My five brothers, three sisters, and I were born in Cross Plains, Wis.; I’ve been living with my raiser/trainer and her dog Grover in Beloit since mid-December.
What are a few of your favorite things? Snow; bones and other chewable objects; Grover.
What’s on your desert island jukebox? Elvis – “Hound Dog”; Zeppelin – “Black Dog”; Ben Folds – “Dog”; Baha Men—“Who Let the Dogs Out?” 
Favorite meal? My kibble - I'm not allowed to eat anything else, especially people food (although I do sometimes get a little bit of peanut butter or pumpkin).
Any advice? Although I'm super cute and love to meet new people, please ask the human who is with me if it’s ok to say hello, and how to do it. I’m often working (i.e. learning the rules of being a guide dog), and so sometimes I won’t be able to stop and say hello. I know it can be tough to ignore me, but it’d sure help if you could try (and I'll do my best to ignore you too)!
What gets you up in the morning? Sometimes my growling tummy, and sometimes Grover or my human (although I wake them up on some days too).
Who are your heroes? My doggie mama and my older half brothers and sisters who have gone on to be guide dogs for a visually impaired child or adult.
What are you most looking forward to? Learning all I can about how to be the best dog I can be, and hopefully one day being eyes for someone who needs me. For now, I’m pretty excited about being in college!
