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.”

Faculty, staff: use break to InvigorATE with the Wellness Committee

February 27, 2013 at 10:45 pm

As campus quiets next week, the college’s Wellness Committee encourages faculty and staff to take advantage of their five-day InvigorATE program offerings. Organizers say the planned activities are designed to activate, tantalize, and energize you.

“We encourage everyone to take advantage of what is offered,” says Lori Rhead, director of human resources. “Based on feedback from last spring, we are offering the 10-minute chair massages for $5. The cost (normally $10) is being shared by the Wellness and Staff Matters committees.”

Besides opportunities for relaxation and exercise, the events include healthy-cooking demonstrations courtesy of Bon Appetit.

“We're trying to put the 'break' in break week,” Rhead says. “Take a breath, reconnect and get fit.”
