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: Greening Beloit

November 27, 2012 at 5:23 pm


Dear Beloiters,

Has one of your classes inspired you to be greener? Perhaps one of your New Year's resolutions will be to decrease your carbon footprint. The state of Wisconsin encourages recycling by mandating citizens to recycle, and while you are at Beloit, there are many things that you can do to live in harmony with the earth. There's an entire  "Greening Beloit" list in the Student Handbook, but here are just a few things that you can do:

  • "Keep exterior doors closed when possible in order to not lose heat or cool air."
  • "Close windows when heater or air-conditioner is on--adjust thermostat appropriately." 
  • "Turns off appliances such as VCRS and CD players when not in use." (Oops, I think the committee needs to update this section, *throwback.*)
  • "Use refillable pens and mechanical pencils, hand-powered sharpeners, refillable tape dispensers, and hard-surfaced, washable calendars."

There are also charts of what can and cannot be recycled on pages 128 - 129 of the Student Handbook; see the full policy in the PDF at right.

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

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