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.”

Dirt Alert: New roofs for Smith and the library, windows for WAC and more

May 23, 2011 at 6:46 pm

Spouses and friends often wonder aloud if the summer isn’t “quieter” on the Beloit College campus. Though there may be fewer souls on the sidewalks, it’s certainly not quiet. Here, as undeniable proof, is a rundown of the Physical Plant’s summer construction list:

·         The Smith Building – home to the Art Department and Physical Plant – will be getting a new roof this week. While this work is underway there will be scaffolding erected in different areas around the building, but all entrances will remain accessible. However, parking on the west side of Smith will be restricted to keep vehicles away from falling debris.  The Security and Admissions Office vehicles will be relocated to the parking behind Pearsons during construction, which is expected to last five weeks. 

·         Speaking of roofs: The Library will be getting a new and improved roof this summer as well. Work is expected to begin next month (in June).

·         Painting on Campbell Hall has already begun. The wood trim on the building is being repaired and repainted. Physical Plant is advising that you be careful when on the nearby pathways, as workers will be using a lift and scaffolding and will not always have a good view of what is below them.

Also this summer:

·         Construction crews will be doing work on the Science Center’s air handler unit and windows within the month.

·         The World Affairs Center (you know, “WAC”) will be seeing some window repair and replacement. This work is expected to begin in August.

·         And lest you forget, construction is also underway down at Strong Stadium. For the latest – which includes news that the dimensions of the new field are now apparent – visit
