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.”

Hungry? Food service news for the final push

December 12, 2012 at 11:21 pm


Powering through your last days of the semester—what with final exams and papers and packing up for winter break—is bound to leave you hungry. Below are some details about food service to keep in mind as we wrap up the last week of the semester.

If you want to stay on top of Bon Appetit at Beloit happenings, check out their new Facebook page—just be forewarned, it’s probably going to make you hungry.

and Java Joint will supply their normal offerings up through the end of the normal business day Friday (Dec. 14), at which point they’ll remain closed until the spring semester begins.

Commons will remain open through lunch Wednesday, Dec. 19—the day that residence halls close for students; however, the last late-night offering will be Monday (Nov. 17).



  • Right now, you can hit up the hot chocolate bar outside D.K.’s for some pre- or post-exam comfort, featuring toppings like crushed candy canes and fresh whipped cream.
  • Friday’s (Dec. 14) late night will feature a) breakfast food and b) some of your professors and administrators (Christina Klawitter, John Winkelman, and Teresa Leopold will be there) as servers, from 9 p.m. until 11 p.m. Good news, yes. Better news? THIS ONE’S ON THE HOUSE—that’s right, no swipe, no fee, you can eat for free after 9 p.m. Friday. Bon Appetit is picking up the tab.
  • Worried about your coffee supply after the Java Joint closes Friday? Don’t fret—starting Saturday (Dec. 15) you can pay for a to-go cup at the Commons cashier and fill up with Fair Trade brew.
  • Need a little sweet distraction? On Sunday, staff will be putting out the supplies for gingerbread houses during brunch, 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.


Meal plans:

If you make no changes, you’ll have the same meal plan in the spring as you had this semester. Additionally:

  • All remaining flex dollars on fall meal accounts will automatically roll over to your spring food account if you continue as a registered student for the upcoming term. For example, If you have $50 flex on account as of Dec. 20, your spring meal plan will reflect this additional $50.
  • All Beloit Bucs dollars remain on your account.
  • If you haven’t already done so, you can change your plan when you return to campus, between Jan. 14 and Jan. 24.
  • If you have any questions regarding your meal plan please see Peter Kraemer or Ken Hnilo in the main Commons Food Service office.
