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.”

Keister’11 staying busy – and warm – in D.C.

June 24, 2011 at 4:21 pm

Mary Keister, last year’s Round Table editor and a May 2011 graduate, is spending her summer interning at the hip and venerable Washington Post—a choice journalism appointment that landed her on the Post’s website last week and even nabbed her a mention (that’s Mary, fourth from the left). Currently a web producer on the Style desk, it was Mary’s Pippa Middleton gallery that landed her some kudos in the Post and produced, as the author put it, “a ton of hits.”

Mary was kind enough to respond to the Terrarium’s plea for more details and reported she’s currently compiling and writing captions for numerous such photo galleries and penning “the occasional blog post, etc.” Next month, she’ll trade assignments and be updating the Post’s home page on the night shift.

Though she and her fellow interns are quick becoming one with the news organization they serve – they have even lunched with the paper’s executive editor, Marcus Brauchli – it’s not all fun and games. As the blog post outlines, there are roof top reporting gigs at high noon, a sprawling newsroom to traverse, and even routine D.C. life interruptions (like water outages) to contend with.

But that’s not all. As Mary reports: “It is so hot here, especially compared with Beloit temperatures!”

We want more:

In recent days we’ve been uncovering news about two recent Fulbright awardees among the classes of 2011 and 2010, tracking current students on prestigious research assignments at universities around the country, and been meeting Beloiters summering in town while hammering out research projects with faculty.
