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.”

Jamaican storyteller to visit Beloit for workshop, performance (sign up)

October 15, 2012 at 5:20 pm

As soon as fall break is over, you’ll have several chances to see renowned Jamaican storyteller Amina Blackwood-Meeks, whose work is inflected by her training and experience in politics, theater, and education. She will be on campus next Monday and Tuesday.

Amina Meeks 

See Blackwood-Meeks perform Monday (Oct. 22) at 7 p.m. in the Hendricks Center, in “Once Upon a Time…is Now: Storytelling from Jamaica.” The event will begin with a reception at 6 p.m., catered by the Cheese People of Beloit.

Students can sign up for a storytelling workshop with Blackwood-Meeks, taking place Tuesday (Oct. 23) from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Bunge Studio of the Neese Performing Arts Complex.

To register for the workshop (registration is required) visit

Blackwood-Meeks’ visit is made possible by Labs Across the Curriculum and the Caribbean Initiative, launched last year to expand both faculty members' and students' understanding of the Caribbean.

“Although this will be Amina's first visit to Beloit, in some sense it will also be a homecoming, as she met Lisa Anderson-Levy, Nancy Krusko, and student participants in the Jamaica Field School when they were in Kingston last January,” explains Director of International Education Elizabeth Brewer. “Students and faculty will also find that she is a strong proponent for the place of the arts in education and human development.”
