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.”

Seeking something a bit summery? New video is just that

It might not affect current students directly, but it does have an impact on the Beloit College community as a whole: Reunion is now being held in June, rather than the fall.

In order to spread the word about the switch in seasons, the new video “Summer (reunion) dreaming” was produced for the college’s YouTube account. As classes let out on a snowy Friday earlier this month (March 2), there were lots of passers-by shaking their heads and laughing as President Bierman emerged in shorts, a Hawaiian shirt and a turtle visor for the five-minute shoot.

Can you believe we had seven inches of snow on the ground something like 10 days ago?!

P.S. The lawn chair was provided courtesy of TKE; thanks, guys.
