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.”

Snow poll: survey says no snow until January

December 9, 2012 at 11:03 pm

We must all secretly love talking about the weather, because last week’s poll was one of the most popular in Terrarium history. Nearly 270 of you took the time to respond, with the most popular opinion (at 43 percent) being that we won’t see decent snowfall until after Dec. 25, but before the start of spring semester.

When will we finally have something to shovel in Beloit? Final results, as of Sunday night:

  • 40 percent – We’ll have a green Christmas, but snow before spring semester starts in January
  • 18 percent – Before winter break begins
  • 17 percent – Other
  • 13 percent – Don’t know, don’t care—no snow is fine!
  • 11 percent – Never. This is the way a Midwestern winter is, now.
