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.”

Spring Day on its way

April 19, 2011 at 7:10 am

It may have snowed on Monday, but that just means we need Spring Day more than ever. Celebrate the (hopefully impending) spring weather, the final school days, and the sun.

Spring Day, put on by Greek life’s Interfraternal Panhellenic Council (IFPC for short) with funding provided by the Beloit Student Congress, is an annual Beloit tradition. Classes are cancelled and everyone is basically required to have fun, with free popcorn, T-shirts, and ice cream galore. It’s really almost mandatory to have a good time. And just so you don’t miss anything this day has to offer, IFPC Spring Day Coordinator Nadia Rashed is going to give us a little preview of the day’s slate of events.

Entertainment:
Begins at noon in the 609 Quad. This year’s campus bands and DJ line-up includes a Blink 182 cover band, Campus DJ Adam Nicholas, Highway X, Old School Aquatic, and The Nicholas Cage Fighters. The headlining band is Wook, a group from Madison.

Events:
After a 10 a.m. Turtle Trot starting off at the college sign (corner of Chapin and College streets), head on over to one of this year’s most anticipated events: the Dunk Tank. Professors, staff, and faculty members—so far, organizers have wrangled Sam Strover (admissions counselor), Tracy Hazen (communications professor), Paul Stanley (physics professor), Kevin Braun (chemistry professor) and others. You will not want to miss out on this!

Other activities include:
Laser tag, frisbee spin art, caricature portraits, and a bouncy castle.
