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.”

Favorite class? My favorite class I have taken so far has been Nutrition to Nuclear Power. It was taught by two professors: Pat Polley and Katie Johnson. It was an incredibly interesting class, not only was the material interesting, but how it was structured, too; half of the semester was taught by Pat Polley, and it was about global warming and how we use energy on a large scale, and the other half of the semester was taught byKatie Johnson, focusing on diabetes and how we use energy on a biological scale.

It was a great way to learn about two very relevant issues, and the science behind them. The way they split up the semester got us to think about the idea of energy form multiple angles. All of the way through the semester, they kept the class engaging. One week we were learning about America's power grid, and a few weeks later we were conducting blood-glucose tests on mice.

What three items go in your desert island backpack? Matches, a hammock, and some device on which I can spend hours reading fascinating Wikipedia articles—an iPad, cell phone, whatever, I'm not picky.

Favorite meal? Pumpkin pie. Any pumpkin-based dessert, really. Why is pumpkin only a
seasonal thing?

What gets you up in the morning? The thought of breakfast.

Any advice? Come to the Voodoo Barbie show next Tuesday (Oct. 30)!
