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.”

Social-issue focused theatre hosts interactive performance

November 28, 2012 at 10:43 pm

Have you ever walked away from a situation in which you wished you had said something but instead chose to stay silent? Have you ever been in a situation where you felt oppressed by another person/group of people and didn't know how to handle it? Do you want to be a force of positive social change?

Consider coming to Theater for Social Action's upcoming Rehearsal for Action! The show will take place Saturday (Dec. 1) at 7 p.m., in the Java Joint.

Theater for Social Action is an unofficial theatre troupe on campus that uses techniques from Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed to prompt discussion and solutions to social issues in our community. The theatre is interactive in nature, allowing participants in the forum to rehearse solutions that could be used in “real life.”

If audience members don't want to jump in, though, “We totally respect that! Just be present!” organizers say.
