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.”

40 attend Tuesday's space-use round table; second opportunity to weigh in TODAY

December 13, 2011 at 4:39 pm

At the invitation of the Space-Use Planning Committee, more than 40 faculty and staff and several students discussed issues surrounding the use of campus space on Tuesday.

The committee’s goal was to gather input and feedback from the broader campus community about re-conceptualizing some of Beloit’s existing physical spaces. 

Attendees broke into six subgroups to facilitate the discussion. Among the topics of conversation:

  • campus demand for larger venue spaces (classrooms and otherwise)
  • retrofitting historical buildings
  • the proximity of faculty to teaching spaces
  • the idea of a “humanities corridor”
  • the need for upgrades to WAC and DK's
  • the role of the Field House
  • the future of Emerson Hall
  • the impacts of possibly relocating some of the offices and services now in Pearsons, WAC, Smith, and South College
  • and the idea of “third spaces”—those places that could complement and integrate the academic and residential aspects of campus life. 

There is still time to participate in these important conversations. Another session is scheduled TODAY at 12:30 p.m. in Mathers. Everyone is encouraged to attend and offer input.
