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.”

Bringing Beloit to the South Pole

January 24, 2011 at 5:00 pm

True, even we hardy Beloiters had reason to complain about the weather in Wisconsin last week, as subzero winds whipped across campus. A few days below freezing is nothing, however, compared to the frigid temps Beloit College Geology Technician Stephen Ballou has been facing since November as he works at the South Pole in Antarctica, where January’s average high temperature is -14 degrees Fahrenheit.

Ballou brought a little bit of Beloit with him to the Antarctic, as evidenced below; he is holding a Beloit pennant over the geographic South Pole. He was on the continent to work on a National Science Foundation program aimed at discovering meteorites. The program is administered by an alumnus, Ralph Harvey’83.

“I thought you might enjoy the attached photo documenting the range of influence exerted by Beloit College,” wrote Ballou in an email to the Beloit College Geology Department. Ballou is expected to return to campus in March.
