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.”

Attention math and science enthusiasts: GWIS is looking for you

January 17, 2013 at 7:46 pm

The Girls and Women in Science Conference coordinators are looking for people who are interested in planning a lab activity for this year's conference on Saturday, April 6. All genders are encouraged to apply

For those interested in heading a lab, please submit the following no later than Monday, Jan. 28 at 5 p.m.:

  • Name(s) of lab head(s) and any assistant volunteers
  • Lab title/idea (include a short abstract—just a few sentences will suffice—as well as general experimental guidelines/instructions)
  • A list of materials you will need to successfully run the lab
  • A budget estimate (how much will it cost to do your lab - each lab is allotted around $200 max)
  • Any other pertinent information to successfully run the lab

Keep in mind, the labs should be simple enough for a sixth-grader to understand and complete, and easy enough to finish within a 30-45 minute time frame. Each lab period (three total) will have four participants, so keep this in mind when designing your lab. Be prepared to have enough materials for at least 12 kids.

The labs should be related to a science or math field in some way (yes, this includes the "soft" sciences: anthropology, psychology, etc.).

There will be a volunteer meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. in SC 150, where organizers will announce the finalized list of labs, as well as discuss potential theme ideas for this year's conference. Come prepared with ideas!
