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.”

Digital Stories: Hear students' essays Wednesday night, or on public radio

April 4, 2012 at 6:43 am

 

The students of Christi Clancy's English 205, Intro to Creative Writing, and English 223, Adapting Stories for Other Media, will screen their digital stories tonight (Wednesday) at 7 p.m. in the Java Joint. Already, however, some of the essays have found a wider audience through airings on Lake Effect, a production of WUWM 89.7, Milwaukee's public radio affiliate.

Clancy, a visiting instructor of English, has aired her own work on Lake Effect. "I've read my work on the station before, so I knew the producer, Mitch Teich. When I sent him the audio files he was really impressed with the student's essays," she says.  Reaching an audience by recording and airing radio essays is a great chance for the students to get hands-on experience, she added.

Already, WUWM has aired Hayley Notter's  "A Wish to be Irish," and "Why I Stopped Going to Youth Group," by Tess Childress. More essays by Beloit College students will be aired throughout the spring.

Other essays are available in multimedia form on YouTube, like  Dani Stein's meditation on medication, "Pills."

Catch these stories and more at tonight's screening in the Java Joint.
