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.”

Election Day: where to go, how to register, and tonight’s rally

October 31, 2012 at 10:28 pm

Election Day is just around the corner! As candidates gear up for the final push before Nov. 6, political clubs on campus are getting busy helping students to register, encouraging people to vote, and educating voters about candidate platforms.

What they’ve been up to:

  • Advocates for Choice is promoting Planned Parenthood-endorsed candidates who focus on women’s health and rights. They are spreading the word on campus through phone banks, outreach tables, and voter contact.
  • Beloit College Democrats have been tabling outside of Commons for several weeks now helping studentsregister to vote in Wisconsin.
  • Beloit College Republicans have been volunteering with the local GOP offices and are bringing Wisconsin candidates Chad Lee, running for the Congressional District of Beloit, and Beth Schmidt, running for the 45th Assembly, to campus. They will be giving a speech that is open to the public today (Thursday, Nov. 1) at 6:30 p.m. in Wilson Theater.
  • Voces Latinas has been educating the Hispanic population in Beloit about voting rights.

If you have not registered to vote in Wisconsin and would like to, registration is simple. In order to register you must be a U.S. citizen, have not committed a felony, be at least 18 years old on or before election day, and have resided in Beloit at least 28 days prior to the election.

You can register using your Beloit College address by mail, in person, or at the polls on Election Day. If you live on-campus and plan on registering at the polls, you must bring a student I.D. and be able to provide either a Wisconsin driver’s license or the last four digits of your Social Security number. If you live off-campus and are registering at the polls, you must also bring a document that provides proof of residency and includes your name and address (utility bill, current lease, etc.).

Students who live on Beloit campus are part of Ward 16 and vote at First Congregational Church, 801 Bushnell Street, located just a block away from campus across from Horace White Park. Voting will take place Tuesday (Nov. 6) from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you want to vote early you have until Friday (Nov. 2) to cast your ballot, and can do so on the first floor of City Hall (100 State St., 2 blocks south of Bushel & Peck's), which is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
