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.”

Mindset List authors featured in local media

January 2, 2013 at 10:35 pm

As the first babies of 2013 are born, Mindset List authors Ron Nief and Tom McBride have some advice for new parents. 

“Start taking notes and preparing for those questions you will have to answer as they graduate from high school in in 2031,” they say.

"What did you use paper dollar bills for?" and "Why did you have to know how to type words. Couldn’t you just talk to your computer?" are just some of the questions Nief and McBride assert parents will have to answer in eighteen years.

Click here to watch a video of McBride discussing the list in a recent Rockford's 13 WREX interview.

The pair also discussed the list with Wisconsin Public Radio’s Kathleen Dunn on Tuesday (Jan. 1). Click here to listen to the broadcast online.
