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.”

One night, two great talks: on national laboratories and multi-cultural workplaces

March 20, 2012 at 5:10 pm

Topping off Wednesday’s slate of Advising Practicum sessions are two great lectures.

Dr. Eric Isaac’79, director of Argonne National Laboratory, will talk at 7:30 p.m. in the Porter Brown Auditorium (Science Center 150) on “Gamechangers: How Our National Laboratories are Working to Help Solve America’s Energy Challenge.”

Those in the National Laboratory system are working on the new energy technologies that could transform the ways we generate, store, and use energy, which has the potential to protect our environment while recharging our national economy. These new technologies, many of which require breakthroughs in basic science, promise to create new jobs (perhaps even new industries) for young scientists and engineers who are now beginning their careers.

But as we tackle the fundamental scientific research we need to discover and develop disruptive new energy technologies, it’s worthwhile to ask: What does it really mean to change the game? What does game-changing technology look like, and what are currently our best prospects for gamechangers? Ultimately, can we really change the energy game in this country?

Isaac believes the answer is yes—but only if we bring together the right people and give them the right tools to address the right questions.

Author David DeLong will speak on “The Multi-cultural Workplace: How Changing Demographics Will Change Your Life” at 8 p.m. in Moore Lounge of Pearsons Hall.

This is a Keefer and Keefer lecture with Mr. De Long,  a research fellow at MIT's AgeLab and a best-selling author who writes about aging in the workplace.  This lecture is sponsored by the Keefer Development Fund.
