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.”

From hip-hop to samba to jazz to capoeira

February 2, 2011 at 4:14 pm

 

After months of rehearsal, a December dance performance, and extensive preparation, Beloit College student choreographers and dancers will showcase their work alongside faculty and guest choreographers at Chelonia, Beloit College’s annual spring dance exhibition.

Performances will be held tonight through Saturday (Feb. 5), at 8 p.m., with a matinee performance Sunday (Feb. 6) at 2 p.m. in the Neese Theatre. Tickets are $8.50 (senior citizens $5; students $4) and may be purchased from the Beloit College box office at ext. 2755.

Preparation for the performance began last August when students were invited to choreograph for the December Dance Workshops, Beloit College’s winter dance performance. Of the 17 pieces in December’s exhibition, eight were chosen for encore performances in Chelonia. These performances feature lighting design by Associate Professor of Theatrical Design Chuck Drury, as well as the opportunity to showcase student work alongside that of dance faculty members Chris Johnson, Gina T’ai, and Sarah Wolf, and guest choreographer Arturo German Hernandez de la Mesa.

Chelonia 2011 features a wide variety of dance styles, including a hip-hop inspired solo performance by senior Joey Hernandez’11, and a modern ensemble piece by junior Molly Steigerwald’12 which has been selected for an additional performance at the regional conference of the American College Dance Festival Association at St. Olaf College in March. Other dances highlight styles such as Samba, jazz, and even Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian dance form incorporating elements of martial arts and acrobatics.

All performances are cast entirely with Beloit college students and alumni, so come: see your friends, your faculty, and your fellow classmates as they take to the stage.
