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.”

Chelonia 2013 serves up great lighting, hip-hop, ‘sardonic humor’

January 29, 2013 at 5:24 pm

With more than 40 students dancing, choreographing, designing (sets, costumes, and lighting) and otherwise making Chelonia the event that it is, it’s quite likely you’ll know at least one person involved. If you show your support and attend one of the four performances set for the remainder of this week, you’re in for a treat.

“There are many great dances this year! The feel of the concert overall is light-hearted and quirky; there is a lot of sardonic humor as well as some serious thought-provoking work by both faculty and students,” says Chris Johnson, associate professor of theatre arts (dance). “The energy and talent of this year’s cast is fantastic, and although most of the pieces are in the modern dance genre, I feel it is one of the most diverse concerts we have presented.”

Seven of the dances are choreographed by students, and three—a piece by Johnson herself, “Between the Lines,” one by Mia Alcorn’13 and another by Claire Alrich’13—will be presented at the American College Dance Festival Association’s regional conference later this spring in Minnesota. “Between the Lines” will be heading even further afield in July, when it’s presented at a festival in Prague.

Besides the familiar faces from campus, the work of two renowned guest artists will be performed—Angeline Holmes and Jesse Zaritt.

Catch CheloniaThursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 p.m. or a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. All performances will take place in Neese Theatre.
