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.”

Three commemorative 9/11 events on campus, in community

September 9, 2011 at 7:14 am

Beloit College is commemorating the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks with two free events open to the public, and the Beloit Public Library will offer another.

The first is a panel discussion called “Reflections on 9/11” scheduled for at 12:20 p.m. today (Friday) in Moore Lounge of Pearsons Hall.

Professor of Political Science Beth Dougherty will present on U.S. foreign policy and the legacies of the war on terror; Professor of Political Science Georgia Duerst-Lahti will speak on the pervasiveness of security measures and the centralization of government power; and Provost and Dean of the College Ann Davies will address civil liberties.

All are also invited to participate in “September 11th – Looking Back, Moving Forward,” a 30-minute event scheduled to take place on Sunday (Sept. 11) at 7 p.m. on the lawn in front of Middle College, 700 College St.

“It will be an opportunity to honor the dead, to reflect about living in the aftermath, and to take part in a unique activity called the Dance for Universal Peace,” said Bill Conover, director of the college’s Spiritual Life Program, which is sponsoring the event. In the event of rain, the activities will move to Eaton Chapel.

On Monday (Sept. 12) at 6:30 p.m. Tony Rajer—a Wisconsin resident who happened to be in New York City working during 9/11 and spent two weeks at Ground Zero with Red Cross and FEMA workers—will share his first-hand experiences in an illustrated talk that tells the story of the World Trade Center, the 9/11 tragedy, and the current plans for development of the site, all from a personal point of view. The event is also free.
