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 Forum on abstraction in mathematics

March 10, 2011 at 4:21 pm

 

Assistant Professor of Mathematics Ben Newton will present "Groups, Algebra, and the Role of Abstraction in Mathematics," as a Faculty Forum on Wednesday, March 16. Faculty and staff members are invited to attend.

"My main area of research in mathematics is in the field of group theory, which is usually placed within a larger branch of mathematics known as algebra,” Newton explains. “As implied by the name of the subject, the concept of abstraction will play an important role, and for this reason I will take some time to discuss mathematical abstraction itself, and some of the ways that I find value in the study of abstract ideas.”

A hot buffet lunch will be available for $3 beginning at noon. To assure a proper count, please RSVP to Csilla Macsari by Tuesday (March 15) by email at macsaric@beloit.edu or at ext. 2263.
