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.”

Tales from Abroad: A multimedia festival

February 28, 2011 at 5:51 pm


It can be hard to explain your study-abroad experience says Matt Pitz’11. People will ask the ubiquitous question—“How was (insert country here)?”

PhotoFilm2“What do you say?” Pitz mused at a Q & A following yesterday’s screening of Tales from Abroad: A PhotoFilm Festival. “Good? Fun? I had a great time?”

He and his classmates found a way to describe their experiences through a mix of mediums during IDST 201: Study Abroad Reflection and Integration. The students in the class returned to campus earlier than the regularly scheduled semester to participate, and Pitz says it gave him an outlet to process his experience studying in Japan, producing a narrated slideshow about the idea of fitting in in an unfamiliar place. The end result is his answer to that ubiquitous question—“This is what I mean by 'good,'” he says.

Along with Pitz, eight other students shared their experience through video, photos, narration, and music, ranging across continents, countries, and cultures. Brian Shobe’12 shared a trip into Ecuador’s oil country, Liz Haan’11 offered up a love letter to Jordan, and Deborah Massey’11 compared the cultural concepts of teatime in Senegal, Russia, and Turkey.

Tales from Abroad: A PhotoFilm Festival will screen for a second time tonight at 7:30 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium.
