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.”

The future of food at Beloit—an update

April 26, 2012 at 10:23 pm

By now, you probably know that the college will be switching from an in-house managed dining service to management company Bon Appetit, effective June 11.

While a contract has not been signed and the details of what exactly will change is still being hashed out, one thing that’s certain is that the campus dining facilities—most notably Commons—will look much different next semester. While nothing is set in stone, here’s what you should expect.

The college’s main dining room will see the most drastic physical changes under Bon Appetit direction. While the core, the kitchen, will remain in the same place, the way food is presented will look very different. The two long line hotwells for keeping food warm will disappear, replaced by stations wrapped around the kitchen: one for (made to order!) pizza, another for pasta, a Mediterranean salads station, soup and deli cart, traditional salad bar, grill, global offerings, and a station for carving and other entrees. Fresco Grille will be removed to create more seating space, and the tray-drop and trash collection area will be out of diners’ sight. The decor will receive a total overhaul, so expect a thoroughly spruced-up display.

Renovations to D.K.’s dining room will be less extensive than those in Commons, but they will happen more quickly to accommodate meals for summer programs while Commons is under construction. The walls along which trays are stored and the soda station sits will be removed, opening up the space. The cashier’s desk will be moved outside the food area and will allow for two cashiers to operate at once, increasing efficiency. Grab-and-go options will be expanded, and the space is still expected to house a grill, desserts, beverages, and capabilities for fresh salads, wraps, and sandwiches.

It does look like the outdoor patio is not going to happen right now, but changes will be made to the counter area.

The establishment will retain its unique look and feel, but boast an updated kitchen with better food-production capabilities.
