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.”

Don’t be scared: be advised

October 24, 2012 at 4:18 pm

We’re no Sybill Trelawney, but we do know that the future can be scary, uncertain or not. Advising Practicum is here to help.

Advising Practicum 

As you’ve probably heard by now, Advising Practicum is taking place Wednesday, Oct. 31, at locations across campus. (Click here to add it to your Google calendar.) But, did you know:

  • This year, concurrent sessions are geared to specific class years—if you’re at loss for what to attend, this could help.
  • Support your friends! At 3 p.m., several students will conduct poster presentations of their summer research in the Science Center Atrium.
  • The 4 p.m. networking reception is a new feature of this year’s Advising Practicum; representatives from the Greater Beloit Chamber of Commerce, Beloit Area Community Health Center, our Representative in the State Assembly, Community Action Inc., Beloit Public Library, and Beloit Memorial Hospital have already RSVP’d. Take the opportunity to put in some face time with potential employers/mentors.

If you want to make a game plan for the day, you can check out the schedule online (searchable by academic departments) or download the PDF of The Guide to Advanced Transfiguration – Advising Practicum by clicking on the link in the upper right corner of this post. The printed version should appear in your mailbox in a matter of days.

There’s a lot going on, and that’s what organizers intended.

“I’m pretty confident that there is not a single person on campus who can’t find something valuable to check out,” says Charles Westerberg, associate dean of the college and director of the Liberal Arts in Practice Center. 

“It’s opportunities like the Advising Practicum that make Beloit a leader in higher education. When I talk to colleagues (both former classmates at Beloit and faculty at other institutions) about the Practicum, they are green with envy.” (He’s right on this one. The alumni the Terrarium have talked to about Advising Practicum are totally jealous.) 

“You could be as excited as I am about the Practicum, but not more,” he adds. “Hope to see everybody there.”
