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.”

Bushnell to get a lot smoother by July

March 23, 2011 at 4:31 pm


As President Bierman noted in his convocation remarks last August, it's only a few hundred steps to downtown Beloit. And assuming you're taking the hill-side sidewalk down, it's a smooth stroll. But if you've driven down in recent years, you may have found the trip down Bushnell to be occasionally tooth-rattling. Relax that jaw, drivers, because the drive to the Beloit Inn, Cafe Belwah, and Highway 51 is going to get a whole lot more pleasant this summer. 

Beginning June 1, the city of Beloit will be repaving Bushnell from the College Street corner (and Poetry Garden) down to Pleasant Street. The city's engineers tell us the street will get stripped, busted up and repaved in a matter of about three weeks. If the timing sounds awfully convenient for those of us fixating on commencement ceremonies in mid-May, that's no accident. The city kindly put off the work plans until the summer for that very reason. 

The trucks and road work won't completely disappear come July. Once Bushnell is complete, the crews will be repaving College Street from Bushnell south to East Grand Ave.
