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.”

Our Porter scholars featured in BDN

The merits of Beloit's Porter Scholar program were touted in a recent Beloit Daily News article.
In "Porter scholars reflect on experiences" published on Nov. 24, Beloit Memorial High School senior Mike Cummins told reporter Geoff Bruce, “It gives you the experience of college when you’re in high school. It helps you prepare and it’s a way to get ahead. Unlike an AP test, it’s an actual college course.”

Other students quoted in the article were Beloit Turner’s Gabriela Gagula and Hononegah High School’s Clairanne Porter.

Assistant Director of Admissions Kate Virgo and Olga Ogurtsova, the faculty advisor to Porter Scholars, were also interviewed, citing the small class sizes, faculty accessibility, and scholarship potential as strengths of the program.
