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.”

We’re “up-and-coming,” according to U.S. News rankings, out today

September 13, 2011 at 12:01 am

Beloit College figured prominently in the annual U.S. News rankings of the “Best Colleges,” released today. The college is included in the upper reaches of its list of national liberal arts colleges, appears on lists recognizing educational institutions that offer students the best value, and ties at number 4 in Up-and-Comer liberal arts colleges.

“The U.S. News college rankings serve as a useful tool for the public to filter the vast amount of information available to prospective students and their families,” said Nancy Benedict, Beloit’s vice president for enrollment. “I think, too, that families understand the methodology is not perfect. Nonetheless, it is gratifying to see that Beloit appears on those lists which we, too, value as measure of quality and success:  Study abroad, a robust financial aid program, and best undergraduate teaching.”

Beloit was included in the following areas:

National Liberal Arts Colleges
In its ranking of the top 236 liberal arts colleges nationwide, Beloit is included in the number 60 spot.

Up-and-Comers
Beloit tied with Pennsylvania’s Allegheny College on a short list of “Up-and-Comer” liberal arts colleges. This list recognizes institutions believed to have recently made the most promising and innovative changes in the areas of academics, faculty, student life, campus, or facilities. (Beloit ranked at number 4.)

Strong Commitment to Teaching
Beloit also was included on a short list of liberal arts colleges recognized for their “strong commitment to teaching,” based on ratings by administrators at regional peer institutions. (Beloit was included at number 15).

Great Schools, Great Prices
Beloit placed 35th on a “best value” listing of 40 liberal arts colleges. The list is compiled by comparing each college’s U.S. News ranking with its cost. As the magazine points out, “Only schools ranked in or near the top half of their categories are included” in the analysis.

Strong Focus on Student Success – Study Abroad
Beloit was included on a list of 27 national colleges and universities recognized for their commitment to “substantial academic work abroad for credit…and considerable interaction with the local culture.”

A-Plus Schools for B Students
The college was also included in this year’s issue on a non-ranked listing of 78 national liberal arts colleges where good students – B students – have a “decent shot of being accepted and thriving.”
