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.”

Attention students: get your free voter ID

February 15, 2012 at 11:37 pm

The Office of Residential Life is now offering a voter ID as a bridge between old and new student IDs.

The 2012 election season is the first in which the new Wisconsin Voter ID Law is in effect. The change means that students who have the old form of student IDs—those issued before August 2011—will not be able to use those IDs to vote.

In last semester’s BUNCHA-K funding process, $5,000 was approved to cover the cost of valid voting IDs for current Beloit College students.

This offer is only available for students in the classes of 2012, 2013, and 2014. IDs issued since August 2011 (for the class of 2015, as well as any student who has purchased a replacement ID) have all the information needed by the polling place.

Only voter IDs requested in person at the Office of Residential Life will be created and supplied. Only one voter ID will be issued per student.

“It’s not a replacement,” Director of Student Engagement and Leadership Jennie Hartzheim says. “It doesn’t work for doors, meal plan, or [the] library. It’s a blank card, not a smart card.”

Students who live on campus will only need the voter ID to vote. The registrar provides a list of students living on campus to the polling place. Students who live off campus will also need a document proving their residence.

Hartzheim says the voter ID will be available through the end of the semester. The Wisconsin Spring Primary is Tuesday, Feb. 21. The Wisconsin Spring Election and Presidential Preference Primary will be Tuesday, April 3.
