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.”

Rolling out the green carpet

Rather than wait for a second seeding of grass to take, Physical Plant installed sod across Aldrich Field early Friday (Aug. 26) morning, aided by campus volunteers.

As reported in the Terrarium, dirt from the Strong Stadium project had been moved to the field in hopes of leveling and improving the turf. A seeding of grass did not take root, however, and President Bierman and Physical Plant Director Michael Brady decided to take matters into their own hands. Literally. Both were on hand to help unload and unroll sod, as were many other Physical Plant employees and other volunteers from across multiple departments.

"While it won't make the space immediately usable, it will move up the timeline by several months from late next spring to late September," Bierman wrote in an email to faculty and staff.
