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.”

It’s Identity Week: How do you see yourself? Others?

April 9, 2013 at 10:19 pm

It’s Identity Week: a celebration of who we are, how we see ourselves, how we see others, and how they see us, courtesy of Beloit College and the Office of Intercultural Affairs. It is also an opportunity to challenge those thoughts, assumptions, and perceptions about our own identities and others. 

Throughout this week, a series of events will provide several different opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to explore multiple identities, the intersectionality of those identities as they relate to sexuality, race, athletics, Greek life, ethnicity, socio-economic status, and more.

“We look forward to great discussions, challenging dialogue, and a deeper understanding of ourselves and others,” organizers say. “The most important part of this week is you and your presence.”
