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.”

Spring is here, and that means a new magazine

March 22, 2011 at 4:39 pm


Like the beloved turtle, the new Spring 2011 issue of Beloit College Magazine is cropping up all over campus this week.

“This issue tackles a topic that's beckoned for years: why is the turtle so beloved at Beloit?” says Editor Susan Kasten. “In her cover story, Amelia Buzzell'10 does a superb job of unearthing the reasons, while showing us the weird and wonderful ways Beloiters express this affinity.”

After several issues of photographic covers, the magazine is again using artwork on the cover: Origin of Endless Column (2009) (think Scott Bierman’s inauguration speech—“turtles all the way down”) by Seattle-based artist Robert McCauley.

“Serendipity led us to it,” says Kasten of the creative cover.

This issue also sees the debut of a section called “Significant Object,” highlighting items of special significance. Check out page 33 of the print version to see what we’re talking about; this issue’s object is actually a pair—of tiny, three-and-a-half inch lotus shoes from China.

To read more, pick up an issue on racks around campus, or check out the magazine online, where you can leave comments on your favorite articles.
