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.”

Tell your story—in a new Hales Gallery exhibit

March 7, 2013 at 2:24 pm

Are you ready to tell your story? A new campuswide project sponsored by Residential Life gives you the chance to do just that. Coordinated by Area Hall Director Kelsey Schultz with help from resident assistants Otis Howell’15 and Logan Jacobson’13, the Personal Storytelling Project exhibit in Pearsons’ Hales Gallery is part of a larger movement.

Schultz explains that the project is part of a collective storytelling project movement started in Dubuque, Iowa, and it incorporates research from slam poet Andrea Gibson, blogger Dear Sugar, and storyteller Brene’ Brown's work.

“This exhibit provides an opportunity for students on campus to authentically share their stories anonymously, while embracing vulnerability and exploring elements of shame and courage,” Schultz says. “We want to help students connect and build community by creating a safe space and sharing stories through our collective writing project.” 

The exhibit contains a letter-writing station (used originally in the Dubuque debut of the storytelling project), an “expressions tree,” and a wall of “standing in courage” photographs.

Stop by Hales Gallery (located in the first floor of Pearsons, just north of the main front entrance) to check it out, now through next Friday (March 15).
