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.”

Engage with the 2012 Upton Scholar, an Islamic studies professor

October 21, 2012 at 5:47 pm

As part of the fifth annual Miller Upton Forum, 2012 Upton Scholar Timur Kuran (pictured below) will give the June and Edgar Martin Memorial lecture on “Religious Obstacles to Democratization in the Middle East: Past and Present.” The lecture takes place Friday (Oct. 26) at 7 p.m. in the atrium of the Center for the Sciences.

Named for economist and sixth Beloit College President Miller Upton, the Upton Forum on the Wealth and Well-Being of Nations is Beloit’s premier residency program in economics. Students spend the first part of the semester focusing on the work of a different scholar, who later visit campus as the Upton Scholar, giving Beloiters a chance to interact with great minds in the discipline.

Kuran is a professor of economics and political science and Gorter Family Professor of Islamic Studies at Duke University. His research focuses on social change—including the evolution of preferences and institutions—and on the economic history and thought of the Middle East.
