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.”

Grammy-nominated alumnus appearing in Wisconsin, Illinois

April 14, 2013 at 6:53 pm

Grammy-nominated alumnus Stephen Wade’76, author of the new book,The Beautiful Music All Around Us: Field Recordings and the American Experience, will be presenting at several venues not far from Beloit in the next few days.

As we reported in the spring issue of Beloit College Magazine:

“Between 1934 and 1942, Library of Congress field recordings captured the sounds of largely unknown musicians and singers where they lived and made their music—in their kitchens and hotel rooms, prisons, churches, and school auditoriums, and on the porches of houses from Southern Appalachia to the Mississippi Delta to the Great Plains.

In 1994, musician and writer Stephen Wade’74 set out to produce and release a CD collection drawn from these recordings, which were housed in the Library of Congress’s Archive of Folk Culture. What he found was scant biographical information on most of the performers and their work, and an aching curiosity to know more about the context of these one-of-a-kind recordings.”
