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.”

Did you know: Tuition remission applies to summer programs?

March 6, 2013 at 2:32 pm

The same Beloit College employee benefit that provides tuition remission to the children of faculty and staff also applies to the likes of Beloit Blocks, Summer Fields, and the Center for Language Studies.

“Basically, children of faculty and staff can attend any one of our three programs (Fields, Blocks, and CLS) tuition free,” says Dan Perusich, director of Summer Programs. Said students would still need to pay room, board, and fees, but in the meantime, all three programs award college credit.

Though you might be inclined to have your home-for-the-summer college student or eager-to-experience-college high-schooler live at home and attend one of the programs during the day, Perusich urges you to consider the benefits of a residential experience.

“The reason I say this is Fields is a college immersion program that allows high school students (rising juniors and seniors) to experience every aspect of college, including dorm life, eating college food, etc.,” he says. “CLS is also an immersion-style program, but this time focusing on language. Many students speak the language with one another well into the night, and it may be very beneficial for them to stay on campus to get the most out of the program. It is not required, but it is highly recommended.”

For more information about the programs, see the descriptions below; for application information, or more information about enrollment, contact Perusich at
