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.”

Meet Karly Clippinger’15; rocks rate high with this artist/geologist

March 19, 2013 at 5:07 pm

Karly Clippinger 

Name: Karly Clippinger’15

Hometown: Wales, Wis.

Major: Environmental geology.

Sports/positions: Cross country, track and field (hurdles and high jump).

How would you describe your art, and what are you showing in the Artletics show? I think my art is generally realistic. I really enjoy clean lines and layering with my medium.  Oil pastels are my favorite, but I left them at home so I will be showing a couple of watercolor paintings and a colored pencil drawing.

What are a few of your favorite things? Honestly rocks rank pretty high, but I’d also have to say a good book, anything chocolate, and runner’s high.

What’s on your desert island jukebox? Anything by Good Old War, Of Monsters and Men, Release the Sunbird, Glen Hansard, or Iron & Wine.

What do you do in your free time? Well what little free time I have I spend either running, painting, reading or organizing.

If you could be reincarnated, what person/thing would you like to be? A sea turtle. Or a bird…maybe a flamingo.

What gets you up in the morning? My internal alarm clock, it often wakes me up before I would like it to.

What’s your favorite hidden gem here in the area? There are all sorts of great places to run once you find them.

Proudest moment? Setting the 60-meter high hurdle record last year.

What are you most looking forward to? Anything to do with travel. I’m really excited to go on the geology department field excursions this summer. We’ll be spending a couple of weeks in Utah, South Dakota and Wyoming.
