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.”

The day I arrived in Berlin was the 22nd anniversary of German Reunification Day. It was a celebration for the tearing down of the Berlin Wall and reunification of West and East Berlin. As I stood where the wall once was, all I could see was a massive party, including a Ferris wheel, bungee jumping, live music under Brandenburg Gate, and German flags everywhere.

In mid-September, my core course "Sustainability in Europe" traveled to the tiny Danish island of Ærø in the Baltic Sea. Although the entire island only has a population of 6,700 and an area of 200 square miles, it has the world’s largest solar heating plant and produces all of its energy through windmills on the island.
