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.”

Wook to headline Spring Day 2011

March 24, 2011 at 4:17 pm


A mix of jam, progressive rock, singer songwriter roots, and electronic instrumentation, Wook—the band headlining Spring Day 2011—creates a sound that is ever-changing. This youthful approach to music is mirrored by the youthfulness of the band. Their fresh take on instrumentation, song composition, and life inspires audiences and fans to join in the party and share in the music.

Wook has burst on to the jam scene in the last year, earning a slot at the 2010 Summercamp Music festival. Wook also played in several music festivals in Wisconsin, including Jammin’ on the Wolf Festival, the Grateful Garcia Gathering, and the Late Summer Diet. Wook has shared the stage with acts such as Roster McCabe and Steez and have played after-parties for Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic, and Railroad Earth. Wook established a solid following in Wisconsin in the last year, and continues to spread their music throughout the midwest.

Campus bands and acts that will also add to Spring Day include a Blink 182 cover band, Campus DJ Adam Nicholas, Highway X, Old School Aquatic, and The Nicholas Cage Fighters. Entertainment will begin at noon on April 20.
