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.”

MEET: Biology major and soccer player Molly Dickson’12

April 19, 2011 at 4:44 pm

 

Molly D 1Molly Dickson, a soon-to-be-senior forward for the Beloit College women’s soccer team, has been invited to play with the USA D-3 All-Star Team in their tour of Brazil in May.

The USA D-3 Soccer All Stars invited players from across the country who were recognized as All-Region or All-Conference by their NCAA Division III conferences.  Aside from representing the USA on the pitch, the trip will also provide the group of All-Stars with educational, social, and cultural outreach opportunities within the communities they visit, and will also allow them to visit schools and historical sites throughout Brazil.

Name: Molly Dickson’12
Hometown/residence: Egg Harbor, Wis.
Major: Molecular, cellular, and integrative biology and a chemistry minor
What are a few of your favorite things? Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...but really, some of my favorite things are being with my family, living on Lake Michigan, and snowboarding. Those are a few that come to mind.
Favorite meal? Grilled salmon, roasted vegetables, and a mixed salad
Who are your top-three fantasy dinner party guests? Aron Ralston (mountain climber who had to cut off his own arm), Mia Hamm (famous women's soccer player), Kelly Clark (Olympic gold-medal snowboarder)
Who are your heroes? My grandma, Miriam Erickson. She is still so active. She travels around the world, she still skis even though she is in her mid-70s, she is very involved in the community, and she still has a lot of time to spend with her grandchildren. I hope to be as active as her when I get to be her age. She is a very amazing person.
Proudest moment? I have three proudest moments: Being valedictorian of my class, scoring three goals against a team from Sweden, and being First Team All-Midwest Conference. 
What are you most looking forward to? I'm really excited to go to Brazil and play soccer, it’s a pretty cool opportunity. I never expected that I would get the chance to do something like that.
