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.”

Faculty/staff: Could you be the biggest loser?

February 23, 2011 at 10:15 pm


Find out this spring, with the Beloit College Biggest Loser contest, running March 3 through May 6. This program is sponsored by the Beloit College Wellness Committee and is intended for Beloit College faculty and staff.

To register your team, please email  with the name of yourself and your weight-loss partner and your team name, or complete the pdf registration form in this post, and send it to Box 126. Deadline for registration is March 2. Register yourself and one other person, as the contest is not doing teams this year, but partners. If you would like to participate in this program and are unable to find a partner, please email  and the committee will connect you with someone.

Weigh-ins will be bi-weekly on Thursdays and Fridays from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Intercultural Center located on the first floor of 609 Emerson (enter from the Emerson Street door). On the first week, weigh-ins will only take place on Thursday, March 3. Weigh-ins will take place in a private place, and team rankings will be based on the percentage of weight lost by each team.

The partner teams aren’t the only changes that have been made to the competition. Want to know what else is different? Sign up by March 2 and come to the kickoff on March 3 and you’ll find out all about it!
