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.”

WAC, Middle College updates underway this week

June 8, 2012 at 11:12 pm

With the majority of the student body absent from campus for the next few months, it’s the perfect time to implement some updates to the grounds and physical structures that make up the college.

Two of these projects will be underway this week, along with the start of changes to dining areas as the college transitions to Bon Appetit as its dining service management company.

  • The World Affairs Center roof will be replaced this summer with a possible start date soon after graduation; this will be a five-to-six week project. This work will complement the updates to the two main floor lounges that are being funded by a $250,000 grant from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation (read more about that here). That work will also be underway this summer.
  • The red square pavers in front of Middle College will be changed, and the portico will be extended out an additional 13 feet and raised up, making the front of Middle College handicap-accessible. The front of the portico will no longer be square; instead, it will have a curved-step approach, similar to the President’s House. There will be two ramps, one on each side, from the base level of the pavers up to the main entrance of Middle college, curved to match the portico and to help them blend into the building face. The bricks will be replaced with a new, road-worthy paver.
