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.”

Saving sacred manuscripts subject of Thursday lecture

April 16, 2013 at 6:06 pm

The efforts of a Minnesota library to digitize and preserve unique manuscripts in Syria, Ethiopia, Turkey, Iraq, and other regions where the survival of historical materials is threatened will be the topic of a lecture at Beloit College tomorrow (Thursday, April 18).

Frequently, the manuscripts the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library preserve belong to endangered minority Christian populations in those regions, and the digitized copies represent the first and only access that Western scholars have had to these ancient and often unique texts.

Fr. Columba Stewart, (pictured below) director of the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library in Collegeville, Minn., will deliver a lecture on this work in “Saving the Sacred: Preserving Historic Manuscripts.” The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place at 4:15 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium, Morse-Ingersoll Hall.

Columba, speaker 

 “The library’s work is valuable both for increasing our historical knowledge of these regions and their religious communities and for fostering cultural connections between Eastern and Western branches of Christianity,” saya Ellen Joyce, associate professor of history at Beloit.

Fr. Columba Stewart has been featured in National Geographic, PBS and The Chronicle of Higher Education, among other publications.

The Beloit College history department is sponsoring the event.
