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.”

Senior art majors take the spotlight at Wright

April 10, 2011 at 4:18 pm

 

After four years of hard work, it’s time for senior studio art majors to shine as they present a final exhibition of their work, "Channels," at the Wright Museum.

This year's seniors (Abigail Kaage, Erin Levy, Irene Rogers, Jack Samels, Mercedes Baker-Kulp, Molly Steigerwald, Norah Perry, Paige Witmer, PaJia Her, and Sara Pace) will exhibit their work throughout the entire museum, a capstone to their arts education at Beloit College.


The artists are responsible for orchestrating all aspects of their show, with details ranging from installing the pieces to composing an artist's statement to lighting design. With guidance from the art department faculty and staff at the Wright Museum, each artist is able to experience creating a professional gallery show. The Senior Art Exhibition has a long history at Beloit College; it began in 1947.

In more recent years, the faculty have presented one artist with the Ellen Malsch Memorial Prize in Art, representing their profound expression of Ellen Malsch's idea of artistic endeavor: "Art must extend a person's mind and vision beyond what he already knows - henceforth the ever ongoing quest of the artist - to seek - discover - invent - manipulate - formulate and bring forth new symbols - new statements." Ellen Malsch was a noted painter whose family and friends set up this award in her honor in December 2001.

Please join them in celebrating this achievement with an opening reception on Friday (April 15) from  4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. The show will remain on display until May 15.
