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.”

Better Together series explores the effects of incarceration

March 11, 2013 at 9:14 pm

We frequently hear statistics and stories about crime and criminals, prison and inmates, and parole and recidivism in the United States. However, the stories of prisoners’ children, spouses, parents, and partners left behind are often neglected.

This week, the Spiritual Life Program and a student interfaith action group (Better Together) will host a diverse panel with direct experiences of this issue. Panelists will share stories, highlight the difficulties of having a loved one incarcerated, and share information they’d want students to know in “The Other Side of the Bars: The Effects of Incarceration on the Families Left Behind.”

The event will take place Wednesday (March 13) at 7 p.m. in Moore Lounge of Pearsons Hall, and will include insights from Officer Lorenzo Henderson of the Beloit Police Department; Elise Giammanco’13; John Miller, of Madison Urban Ministry; and Shawna Lutzow, of Rock Valley Community Programs and Madison Urban Ministry. Debbie Dyslin’13 will moderate.
