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.”

Policy of the Week: Pets

November 13, 2012 at 8:36 pm

Dear Beloiters,

Thankfully  it is almost Thanksgiving Break—a time to eat sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, turkey, and the questionable green Jell-O that you feel obligated to put on your plate because it was made by your grandma. Perhaps your family and the food is not what you're most excited about, but rather, that other part of your family: the pet.

Maybe you're anticipating coming home to Marley the fluffy dog or Sunny the tabby cat or S’mores the adorable hamster or _____ (insert your own pet here) ______delete. Whatever animal you own, we understand that spending quality time with your pet can sometimes be more exciting than family.  It's too bad campus doesn't allow us to have them.  

Tangent: One committee member’s mother housed a cat in her dorm room at Hampshire College in Massachusetts. She legitimized, "If other people can smoke in their dorms, I can have a cat." 

However logical she sounded, her R.A. used similar reasoning to the Beloit College Pet Policy for why she couldn't keep the cat in her dorm: “It's unfair to the animal."   

If you are currently housing an animal, you may be charged with a $60 fee. Read up on the Pet Policy for more information, and don't keep an animal in your dorm room, no matter how cute it is. It's just not fair to the animal.  

With Love from Your 2012-2013 Stu-Pol Committee,

Erik Carlson’15, Dana DiMaggio’14, Hope Doucet’15, Hannah Ireland’13, Reine Lucas’2015, Rachel Machunski’15, and John Winkelmann
