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.”

Join President Bierman for Spring Day 'Turtle Trot'

April 13, 2011 at 4:23 pm


Beloiters, on your marks. President Bierman will be warming up for a fun- and sun-filled Spring Day on Wednesday, April 20, at 10 a.m. by leading a Spring Day run to the river and back. The runner-in-chief organized his first spring day jaunt last year, where he was joined by 30 or so of the college’s finest and fastest (the Bucs cross country and track squads). This year, he’s angling for a bigger turnout. 

The inaugural "Turtle Trot" will include both running and walking courses (see here). Both will start at the main college sign and head up Church Street before dropping down to the river. Walkers will circle the pond at Riverside Park while the running groups will head north on the newly expanded parkside paths to the Henry Avenue bridge. 

T-shirts commemorating the occasion - sure to be collector's items - will be available for the first 150 who arrive. Faculty, staff, and students, as well as spouses and partners, are welcome and encouraged to take part. 

Oh yes. And in case of rain, wear shells. The show will go on.

Afterwards, thirsty trotters can cool their jets at a Spring Day Conviviality at 2: 30 p.m. in the Moore Lounge of Pearsons Hall, where the Wellness and Staff Matters Committees will be serving rootbeer and orange crème floats.
