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.”

RA staff present Last Lecture Series

March 29, 2011 at 8:04 pm


A teacher once asked himself: “If this were my last time to address a group of students, what would I say to them?” With that question, the Last Lecture Series was born.

As such, RA Complexosaurus Rex presents the Beloit College Last Lecture Series. The Last Lecture Series offers a chance for faculty and staff to speak to the student body about anything important that they feel should be said as if it was their last time to address students. Three excellent individuals have been selected.

The inaugural speaker will be physics professor Pat Polley, with "The Trivialization of War in Liberal Arts Colleges." His Last Lecture is happening tonight (Wednesday) at 7 p.m. in Science Center 150.

The second speaker will be music professor Ian Nie, who will present on Monday (April 4) at 7 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium.

The final speaker will be Dean of Students Bill Flanagan, on Wednesday, April 6 at 7 p.m. in Pearsons' Moore Study Lounge.

Each speech will last approximately one hour, followed with roughly 30 minutes for questions and discussion.
