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.”

It's no secret that Beloit boasts some innovative, inspiring faculty and staff; on Friday (April 27) afternoon, the college took the time to publicly applaud some of their work at an annual recognition event. “This event celebrates what’s best about Beloit," said Ann Davies, provost and dean of the college.

Included at the event were the awarding of the James S. Underkofler Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award and the Phee Boon Kang'73 Prize for Innovation in Teaching with Technology. Both recipients received standing ovations as they accepted their awards.

Anderson Levy Underkofler

Nominated by students (some 60 professors were suggested this year) and funded by Alliant Energy, this year's Underkofler award went to Assistant Professor of Anthropology Lisa Anderson-Levy.

Described by students as "incredibly engaging" and "challenging," one wrote that “It’s not an exaggeration to say that she has changed the way I understand the world."
