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.”

In the Stacks: A poem for your pocket (plus, 50 books of poetry to give away)

April is National Poetry Month, and to celebrate, staff at the Morse Library have something up their sleeves—or, rather, pockets.

All week long, the library’s craft table will have copies of poems, along with materials for making postcards and bookmarks.

On Wednesday, though, poemophiles will really get their due, as the library will be handing out 50 books of poetry to the first 50 students to stop by with a printed poem to be added to the pot for Thursday’s event.

Thursday (April 18) is national Poem in Your Pocket Day, a day for poetry lovers to carry a poem on their person and share it with others throughout the day (hence Wednesday’s printed-poem donation drive). If you’re in need of a poem to share, stop by the library and pick one up.
