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.”

Parisian students visit Beloit for cross-cultural study of education

March 8, 2013 at 3:50 pm

Through contacts made by Beloit College student Anthony Otey'13, who studied in Paris last spring and volunteered with Club Barbès (a youth development association working with immigrant communities in France), a small group of high school and college students called the Diplomats of Diplomacy will visit Beloit this week.

The purpose of the group’s visit from Paris (part of a two-week tour during which they’re also visiting Fordham University in the Bronx) is to explore the issues of race, class, and immigration as they intersect with the educational systems of France and the U.S.

“We applaud and encourage students, such as Anthony, who take the steps to converting experiences off-campus into meaningful actions in their ongoing lives and study,” says Josh Moore, the associate director of the college’s Office of International Education. “This is a great opportunity to connect “there” and “here,” which is what Beloit College strives toward in international education.”

Two events related to the visit will take place Monday night: a film screening and a discussion of education from a cross-cultural perspective. 

Discussion: Education in Cross-Cultural Perspective
Monday, 4 p.m., WAC South Lounge

Beloit College students and the visitors exchange experiences of race, class, and immigration in public schools in the U.S. and France. Refreshments will be served.  

Film Screening: The Class ("Entre les Murs")
Monday, 7 p.m., Richardson Auditorium

Teacher and novelist François Bégaudeau plays a version of himself as he negotiates a year with his racially mixed students from a tough Parisian neighborhood. Winner of the prestigious Palme d'Or, Cannes Film Festival, 2009. Discussion to follow. 

Everyone is invited to these events, which are co-sponsored by the Weissberg Program, the Office of Intercultural Affairs, French Club, SSS, Academic Affairs, and the United States Institute of Peace.
