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.”

Student journalist covers Madison protests

February 21, 2011 at 5:29 pm


There’s something to be said for being in the right place at the right time, especially if it generates a byline, as it recently did for junior Anna Holmquist. Because of her proximity to the capital, she was able to cover the ongoing protests there for the New Richmond News.

“I worked for the New Richmond News this summer as an intern,” Holmquist says. The paper serves New Richmond, Wis., located about five hours northwest of Beloit, 45 miles east of the Twin Cities. “They called me on Friday because they knew I went to college close to Madison, and asked if I'd want to go cover the protests. I'd been wanting to go anyway, so I said sure! I always love freelance work, and I especially jumped at the chance to cover the historic events in Madison.”

Though she’s written plenty of news stories, Holmquist said the experience of covering the scene unfolding in Madison was a new one. “I'd never been to a protest before. It was a fascinating experience,” she says. “For me, the most interesting party was going into a coffee shop near the capitol. There were union supporters with their signs waiting in line next to Tea Partiers with their signs. People of all different political views were gathered together by the common desire for food and caffeine!”
