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.”

Music@CELEB means feedback, organizers say

Music at CelebLast Saturday was the kickoff of Music@CELEB, a new event held at Gallery ABBA in downtown Beloit. The goal is to “provide an opportunity for performers to practice a short set in front of a friendly audience of fellow performers and music appreciators,” said Ari Weil’11, one of the students heading up the project and the emcee for the inaugural performance.

Last weekend, several artists played 20-25 minute sets followed by a few minutes of discussion. Anna Holmquist'12 and Lauren Nelson'12 shared a set of acoustic covers and originals; Clara Baker'13, Steven Jackson'12, and Nate Whitley'11 played originals and traditionals; and Leo Brochu'13 and Galen Michel'13 performed a set of experimental music.

Music@CELEB was started by the 12 students of professor Ian Nie’s audio recording and editing class. Several of the students attended a collaborative open mike at the Self Employment in the Arts Conference in February. They realized that Gallery ABBA would be the perfect venue for such an event, and a new performance series was born.

Music@CELEB will be held every Saturday at 7 p.m. for the remainder of the semester. Those interested in performing should contact Ari Weil at weila@beloit.edu or Nate Whitley at whitleyn@beloit.edu.
