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.”

Summer issue of magazine hits campus

July 22, 2011 at 4:08 pm

BCSum11 magWith a nod to commencement, in-depth explorations of courses rich in the liberal arts tradition (meditations on happiness and women’s singing groups, respectively) and a look at what it really means to be “a Beloiter,” the summer issue of Beloit College Magazine is going to be hard to put down.

Luckily, there are enough copies to go around, and you can already read (and comment!) the magazine online at Mail Center will slot copies in faculty, staff, and rising seniors’ mailboxes early the week of July 25. Additional copies will be available in the Pearsons main floor literature rack or in the Office of Communications and Marketing at 631 College St. 

Editor Susan Kasten says this issue debuts a re-imagined news section, aimed at covering more ground. “One example is our coverage of Diane Lichtenstein’s fascinating class about pursuing happiness,” she says.

Much of the coverage in this magazine focuses on what it means to be a Beloiter, and a story aimed squarely at figuring out what that phrase means is one of Kasten’s personal favorites. 

“One of my favorite things about this issue is the cover story, “We Are Beloiters,” which involves four students’ personal reflections on their years at Beloit,” she says. “It’s only a small glimpse at what it’s like to be a student here, but, collectively, these stories speak to why Beloit is such a transformative place.”
