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.”

Beloiters make mark in local elections

April 8, 2011 at 7:24 am


Two recent Beloit College graduates made news this week with elections to the city council and Beloit School Board respectively, and a third alumna, from the class of 1993, was also elected.

A native of Beloit and a member of the college’s class of 2006, Michael Ramsdail is already well versed in civic service: he’s currently president of the school board, and this win will begin his second stint in a three-year board term.

“I am happy but at the same time there is some heaviness knowing that it is not going to get better financially for the school district any time soon,” Ramsdail told the Beloit Daily News Wednesday. He was referencing the district’s steep budget deficit, reported at $12 million.

Newly elected board member Nora Gard'93 joins Ramsdail on the school board.

Meanwhile, political science major Mark Spreitzer’09 earned a seat on the Beloit City Council. He’s a newcomer to the seat, but he cut his teeth in Beloit politics by working on campaigns while a student. The win “completely exceeded my expectations,” he told Daily News reporter Hilary Dickinson in Wednesday’s paper.
