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.”

MUSEUM MONDAYS: Seeking art from campus and community alike

March 27, 2011 at 6:47 pm

 

Have you heard of the Beloit and Vicinity Juried Art Exhibition?

This 54-year-old Beloit tradition draws submissions from talented artists from Wisconsin and surrounding states, but also right here on campus. Paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings, textiles, performance pieces, and photographs are all accepted.

Beloit Students and faculty are encouraged to submit artwork for this year's show, and as an added incentive to attract younger artists, submissions from students cost only $5 per entry rather than the normal $10. Online entries are due by Sunday (April 3).

This year's judges are Darryl Jensen, of the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, and John Riepenhoff of The Green Gallery in Milwaukee. These judges determine which pieces will be included in the show, as well as the first, second, and third place winners. The winner of the Juror's Award is given the opportunity to hold a gallery show the following year at the Wright Museum. In addition, a People's Choice award is presented at the opening of the exhibition. That artist's work will appear on the front cover of the catalog the following year.

So! Submit your work online, and if you need more information, contact Craig Hadley at ext. 2095 or hadleyc@beloit.edu.
