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.”

Student among 16 selected for summer research at National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) has announced that Yang Yang'12, a student in mathematical biology at Beloit College, has been selected for its highly competitive Research Experience for Undergraduates program. Housed at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, NIMBioS is an National Science Foundation-sponsored initiative.

NIMBioS' Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) is an eight-week program. Participants live on campus and work in teams with NIMBioS postdoctoral researchers and UT faculty on research at the interface of mathematics and biology. The six research projects for the 2011 program are modeling feral cat populations, modeling E. coli in cattle, investigating the maternal investment in the offspring of bird species, modeling intracellular movements in plants, modeling the effect of essential oils on a biocontrol fungus, and modeling the early dynamics of simian immunodeficiency virus.
