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.”

Our magazine makes an impression on industry blogger

April 3, 2011 at 5:40 pm


The [latest] issue of Beloit College Magazine has received a nod from the industry’s premier blogger, Dale Keiger of Umagazinology.

In a post titled “UMag Inbox” on March 30, Keiger—associate editor of Johns Hopkins Magazine—employs his typical tongue-in-cheek humor as he talks about our magazine.

“Marlo Amelia Buzzell’s “Turtles All the Way Down” is a lot of fun, digging into what seems at first like trivia but turns out to be part of the deep history of not only the college but the community and the region,” he writes. “Plus, it included this priceless picture of the 1947 synchronized swimming team performing a water ballet with lighted candles. They were called The Terrapins. Some of the best stuff is the stuff you can’t make up.”

Editor Susan Kasten couldn’t be more pleased about the recognition.

“UMagazinology is the only blog in the country I’m aware of that covers the college / university magazine publishing niche,” she says. “It’s gratifying to me that he was inspired to open Beloit College Magazine and even better that he genuinely enjoyed the cover story written by our own Amelia Buzzell’10.”
