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 Beloit College theatre season opens Thursday

God of Carnage

From the moment she first read God of Carnage while sitting on the sidewalk in New Orleans, theatre professor Amy Sarno knew she had to stage it.

The play debuts at Beloit College tonight, featuring four student actors:

  • Patrick Firme’13
  • Calago Hipps’15 (pictured above, right)
  • Melina Montesino’15
  • Simone Stadler’13 (pictured above)

Though the storyline and landscape—parents discussing their childrens’ altercation, in Brooklyn—may seem not at all similar to the environment of a small liberal arts college, there’s still a theme that resonates, according to Sarno.

God of Carnage is quite poignant to me as an educator. Many of my students are likely to become lawyers, wealth managers, socially conscious writers and entrepreneurs some day.  Here at Beloit, they're learning how to perform adulthood,” she says. “But, you know what? Underneath that performance, underneath all that education, every one of us is just a little kid with a wild id running amok.”

God of Carnage will run this weekend (Thursday through Saturday) and next with performances at 8 p.m. in Kresge Theatre; tickets are available before the performance or by calling the box office at ext. 2755. Student tickets are $4, and faculty/staff tickets are $5.
