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.”

Robot Revolution: Lecture describes how philosphers ended it before it started

February 25, 2013 at 11:39 pm

Dr. John Sullins, associate professor of philosophy at Sonoma State University, will speak about "How Philosophers Ended the Robot Revolution Before it Started" in Moore Lounge of Pearsons  Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.

This talk is offered with the generous support of the Mellon Foundation's Labs Across the Curriculum grant, and is organized by professors Robin Zebrowski and Steve Huss-Lederman, who are co-teaching a course on cognitive robotics using a model similar to the one in part pioneered by Sullins.

Sullins has been integrating robotics into philosophy courses for over a decade, and will share his experiences with the campus.

"He will also be talking about the idea of labs across the liberal arts curriculum, so I particularly encourage all students and faculty who have been taking part in our college's labs initiatives to attend Dr. Sullins's talk," Zebrowski says.
