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.”

Say cheese! You might have just won for taking part in the holiday photo shoot!

November 30, 2011 at 4:28 pm

If you are a member of the International Club, Kappa Delta, the accounting office, or your name is Claire Hof, we’re pleased to inform you that your enthusiastic participation in the November 16 campuswide photo shoot has earned you a prize.

As you might remember, in order to lure you out of your offices/dorm rooms/classrooms and into the frigid, late-fall Wisconsin air, prizes were offered for the shoot’s best-dressed individual, campus office, and student organization. Below, the results. It was hard to choose, but if you didn’t win, just take this chance to start planning your sartorial attack for next year!

Best-dressed individual: Area Hall Director Claire Hof
Many people wore great outfits, costumes, or head gear, but hall director Hof takes the cake (or, in this case, some Beloit-wear and a gift certificate to a local business) for putting together an entire ensemble that looked simultaneously festive and effortless.

Best-dressed office: Accounting
This office banded together (in an organized manner one might expect of the accounting department, naturally) and let their holiday spirit shine by donning fabric banners. Looks like they’ll be the office to beat the next time around. For their efforts, they’ll be awarded an office lunch.



Best-dressed student organizations: a tie between the International Club and Kappa Delta
The International Club came out in full force and with great regalia, carrying flags from their home countries as they posed in front of Middle College. Their turnout was unparalleled, and their enthusiasm much appreciated--as were the balloons.

Int Club 

When it comes to club cohesiveness, though, Kappa Delta was hard to beat, hence the tie. The sorority turned out in matching Kappa shirts. Both student groups will be awarded a pizza party.
