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.”

Tips from the Health Center on avoiding the flu

January 17, 2013 at 7:44 pm

The friendly folks at the Health Center would just like to offer some reminders about staying healthy this winter. You know the drill:

  • Remember to wash your hands frequently
  • Don’t touch your face
  • Cough into your sleeve
  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Get plenty of rest
  • Eat healthy
  • Get a flu shot—it’s not too late!

Symptoms of influenza usually occur suddenly. These include a fever of over 100 degrees, fatigue, body aches, cough, and maybe a sore throat. You may also have a runny nose, vomiting, or diarrhea.

If you are sick with the flu, you should stay home from class, sports, or work. You should not return until you no longer have a fever for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications.

If you have acute symptoms such as body aches, fever over 100 degrees, and a cough, you should contact your health provider.

Most cases of the influenza can be treated with over-the-counter fever reducers, cough medicine, and plenty of fluids and rest. Be sure to call the campus health center if you feel you need to see an upper-level medical provider.

Students: the campus health center is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until noon, and 1 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. Call ext. 2331 to make an appointment.
