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.”

“How Should We Live?” a “last” lecture by Donna Oliver

March 21, 2013 at 9:48 pm

In a "Last Lecture," a professor is asked to develop a response to this question:

"If you were standing before a group of students for what you knew was the very last time, what would you say?"

Professor of Modern Languages & Literatures Donna Oliver (above) has chosen to talk about literature’s capacity to develop compassion, moral awareness, critical self-reflection, and a deeper understanding of both ourselves and others. She’ll present these ideas Monday (March 25) at 7 p.m. in “How Should We Live?” in Richardson Auditorium. “As for the inspiration—I just took the directive literally: if this were my last chance to convey to students my thoughts on what Russian literature has to teach us, this is what I'd say,” Oliver says.
