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.”

Date Safe event asks: Can I Kiss You? (plus, free T-shirts!)

March 27, 2013 at 11:08 pm

For over 15 years, the Date Safe Project has been promoting a healthier approach to dating and communication. In a live show Saturday (March 30) at 2 p.m. in Wilson Theatre, Date Safe founder and author of May I Kiss You? Mike Domitrz will talk about how to ask for what you want sexually or intimately—without having to play any of the games, revealing ways to make sure each person's boundaries are respected.

“We believe that bringing this program to campus is very timely and will supplement the various conversations that are already happening around campus regarding Beloit College's Sexual Assault Policy,” says Katherine Miller. “The program is very entertaining and informative, but also has an activism piece that we believe is crucial. Students will be able to take away a newfound awareness of the issues and new skills to use in a variety of daily interactions on campus to decrease the amount of sexual misconduct at Beloit.”

Policy is part of creating a healthier environment on campus, but organizers think community buy-in is key.

“Having a complete and revamped policy is important, but equally so (if not more important) is to have the whole community on board,” says Miller.

The first 80 people to arrive at the show will receive a free T-shirt like the one Miller and co-organizer Namoonga Mantina, pictured above, are wearing. Other merchandise will be available for purchase, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the local Sexual Assault Recovery Program. Representatives from SARP will also be on hand to discuss their services.
