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.”

Vice President Biden slated for Beloit middle school visit Friday

October 30, 2012 at 9:09 pm

 

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is reporting that Vice President Joe Biden will be in Beloit on Friday. According to a Beloit Daily News update Tuesday night, Biden will be stopping at Aldrich Middle School at 9 a.m. Friday. Campaign officials told the paper that Biden will be in both Beloit and Superior on Friday, though the "Obama for President campaign noted that Biden's travels are subject to change because of weather conditions."

The college hosted a visit by then-Senator Barack Obama during the 2008 election, as well as a visit by Chelsea Clinton, daughter of former President Bill Clinton.

At this point, there's no indication that the campaign stop will be on campus.
