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.”

Winterfest is on, with or without snow

January 24, 2013 at 10:21 pm

Okay, yes, it’s cold. But why not try to enjoy it? The city of Beloit is hosting its annual Winterfest celebration this weekend, starting Friday (Jan. 25) afternoon and running through Sunday. If you’re not from Wisconsin and want a chance to savor some winter entertainment while you can (ever ice skated? It’s free Friday night with the donation of a nonperishable food item) or just want to get off campus for a bit, or find something for your entire family to do on a weekend afternoon, there’s quite a bit planned.

While some of the events are more snow-centric and a quick glimpse outside shows quite a bit of green ground as of Thursday afternoon, organizers assure that most events are adaptable. And with temperatures hovering around zero all week, it definitely still feels wintry.

To see a full listing of events—everything from ice-skating to sleigh rides to euchre tournaments and roller derby—check out the Visit Beloit website. Each Winterfest event in their calendar listing is tagged as such.
