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.”

Name: Ellie Daniels’13

Hometown/residence: Portland, Ore.

Major: Environmental biology, studio art.

How would you describe your art, and what are you showing in the upcoming Artletics show? I create art from recycled, scrapper, or otherwise found materials. Repurposed objects can transcend their constraints as trash. My recent work with cigarettes is a self-reflection of how smoking has been a constant part of my life since I was very young. Even though I am not a smoker myself, some of the people I am closest to are, or are greatly affected by smoking in general.

What’s on your desert island jukebox? Baby’s On Fire by Die Antwoord and Wonderful Life by Seed.

Favorite meal? Thanksgiving at the Chiquoines’s house, or home-cooked Chinese food

What can’t you live without? My family, friends, dog, and planner. Food is pretty good too.

What do you do in your free time? Find new places to eat, go to sporting events, or hike when the weather is nice enough.

What gets you up in the morning? Knowing there are grapefruits in commons.

What’s your favorite hidden gem here in the area? The corn puppies at the Turtle Tap. Ice Hogs games in Rockford are also great.

Proudest moment? Becoming a captain of the women’s LAX team has been a very exciting part of my life this year.

If you were auditioning for American Idol, what song would you sing? The alphabet.
