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.”

Margi Cole of Dance COLEective on campus this week

February 20, 2011 at 4:02 pm

 

Margi Cole of Dance COLEctive will be teaching classes, offering workshops, giving a lecture, and performing her most recent piece. 

As the Jane Quisenberry Wirtz’35  Endowed Artist, deleteMargi Cole will be offering a student workshop tomorrow (Tuesday) from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Bunge Studio of the Neese Theatre Complex. There are 20 slots available for students to participate; to reserve your spot, sign up outside the theatre’s administrative office. 

Margi describes her workshop as touching on “ideas around narrative, investigating gender-specific movement vocabulary and examining physical relationships both literally and in space. How do all of these ideas lend themselves to the creation of a dance? This exploration provides some insight into the work 'Written on the Body,' a forum to challenge society’s current perceptions of gender and stereotypes by addressing public and critical literary expectations of female writers in 19th-century England.” Participants should wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and be prepared to move.

For students, staff, and faculty interested in hearing about Margi's creative process, her lecture, “Written on the Body: The Moving Pseudonyms of the Brontë Sisters,” will take place Wednesday night (Feb. 23) at 7 p.m. in the WAC South Lounge.
