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.”

Let award-winning international study photos transport you (video)

March 18, 2013 at 5:12 pm

Feeling trapped in cold, wintry Wisconsin? Visit the Hales Gallery (on the first floor of Pearsons) this week and let 22 prize-winning photographs from around the world transport you to another place.

 The 2012-2013 ACM Off-Campus Study Photo Contest Traveling Exhibit was installed Monday,  and will be on display in Hales Gallery through next Tuesday (March 26). Currently in its fifth year, the contest received 95 entries from ACM students who studied off-campus everywhere from Chicago to Senegal to India. A panel of judges awarded a Grand Prize, first-, second-, and third-place awards in three categories—People, Stories, and Artistry—and 10 honorable mentions, all of which are currently on display in this traveling exhibit. ACM students and friends got the chance to get in on the action through Facebook, with over 500 people casting their votes to elect three Fan’s Choice photos, also included in the exhibit.

One of the highlights of this year’s exhibit is “Herder Pride,” the first-place winner in the People category, taken by Beloit’s own Sarah Morgan ’13 during her semester abroad in Mongolia in the fall of 2011.

You can read the story behind Sarah’s winning photograph here, in the most recent issue of Beloit College Magazine.

To see more of Sarah’s stunning photographs and hear her reflections on life in Mongolia, watch her photo film “Place: A Beloiter’s semester in Mongolia” on YouTube.
