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.”

What’s up in the C-Haus this week

November 6, 2012 at 4:44 pm

From C-Haus Manager Steve Olivieri:

Wednesday (Nov. 7)
Golden Donna opens up at 10 p.m. with some ambient electro-synth to tickle your toes into dancing. Then Trin Tran takes over with a one-man approach to noise rock, using his hands and feet in unison playing a plethora of instruments. Kisser closes out the night with enough fizzling distortion that you’ll see spots.

Thursday (Nov. 8)
Presenting the genre in its truest form, old-time-cut-ups the Rock River Rounders will take the stage at 10 p.m. to perform some traditional old-time music with fiddle, banjo, button accordion, and guitar.

Friday  (Nov. 9)
Come hear the most unpolished, angst-driven, literary ‘masterpieces’ from Beloit students' high school careers, read aloud by their authors. Poetry, short stories, essays, journal entries, songs--it could be anything at Sh*t Lit!, taking place at 9 p.m. Starting at 10 p.m., check out Johnny Lowebow and Purgatory Hill, who have turned modern blues and rock upside down with the addition of an old-styled cigar-box guitar. The instrument has gained momentum lately and these two acts have kept at the forefront. Sandwiched in the middle are Jerry Fels & the  Jerry Fels. These acoustic rockers shed their angst and political irritations in a punk-turned-folk approach.

Saturday (Nov. 10)
Openers Wook (10 p.m.) draw on influences from many genres, mixing jam, progressive rock, singer songwriter roots, and electronic instrumentation. Acoustic folk-rock group An Evening With Your Mother hails from Champaign, Ill., but you’ll recognize a familiar Beloit face. Armed with a healthy dose of material, their high energy will keep us going through the night.
