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.”

Museum Mondays: Getting up close and personal with art and artifacts

September 25, 2011 at 11:54 am

Question: What do these courses have in common?:

  • Chemistry 117: Chemistry
  • English 190-03: Native American Literary Traditions
  • History 210-02: World History I—Civilization and Empire
  • History 243: U.S. Nationalism and Internationalism, 1861-1945
  • History 310-01: Immigration
  • Theatre, Dance and Media Studies 360: Professional Development Seminar
  • FYI Seminar: “This is when I became myself”: Childhood and Adolescence in American Literature and Culture

Answer: All of these classes, as well as other FYI seminars and many anthropology and art history classes, have already used or will soon use Beloit’s museum resources this semester in exciting and innovative ways. At the Logan Museum and Wright Museum, students get up close and personal with real objects—things that help bring classroom work and readings to life. From the composition of metal weapons to the life and times of Charles Eastman, museum collections provide unmatched opportunities for students to experience the ability of objects to spark curiosity, understanding, and creativity.

Faculty, staff, and students in every field can benefit from use of the museums, whether as part of skill-building visual literacy exercises or to lend materiality to a broad array of topics, concepts, or theories. Staff members at both museums are eager to help all members of the college community explore, learn from, and enjoy our unique resources. Please contact anyone at the Logan or Wright to arrange a general tour, focused visit, or class experience.
