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.”

Textbook rental: It’s like Redbox/Netflix for your books

August 19, 2011 at 2:40 pm


By this point, most of us are used to renting movies out of a little red kiosk or getting them in the mail via Netflix. What if getting your textbooks for the semester was just as easy and at a fraction of the cost you would pay to buy the book? Well, now it is. 

This semester, Turtle Creek Bookstore is offering a textbook rental program. Besides the savings (usually more than 50 percent), the process for renting textbooks is not much different than buying them outright. Books can be purchased in the store—located downtown at the corner of Grand Avenue and Pleasant Street—or online, at the bookstore’s website. When purchasing online, a “rental” option will display at checkout. Books can be returned at the bookstore or by mail.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer rentals on campus,” said Peter Fronk, the bookstore’s manager. “It’s very popular with students not only because of the incredible savings, but because it’s so convenient and easy to use. Students who rent from the bookstore are also assured that they are getting the right books for the right course.”  

One important note: Even if the rentals are paid with cash, the bookstore will need to keep a valid credit card number on file for the duration of the rental.

Decide you like the book so much you’d like to keep it? No worries—you can convert your rental to a full purchase within the first two weeks of classes.
