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.”

Arthi 2

Name: Athiththan Selvendran’14.

Hometown: New York, New York.

Major/minor: International relations.

What brought me to Beloit: The beauty of the campus and being recruited to play football.

My favorite class so far, and why you should take it: I would advise my peers to take any class with Beth Dougherty. She is one the best professors I’ve had at Beloit College and she is the coolest person I’ve met in my life.

You may have seen me: Staring in Athi-brah videos on YouTube or in the weight room getting shredded.   

The best book I’ve read at Beloit: Modern Hatreds: The Symbolic Politics of Ethnic War (Cornell Studies in Security Affairs).

What are you working on? At the moment Derby Days (a week of philanthropic events) and Great Lakes (our biggest party of the year, which took place last week), as well as planning copious amounts of events the Sigma Chi Fraternity will do on campus next year to build a better relationship with the Beloit College community.

What’s on your desert island jukebox? House music and Lana Del Rey.

What’s on your Beloit College bucket list? Create Greek unity and strengthen the relationship between the campus and fraternities/sororities.  

Favorite meal? Sushi or ostrich with a side of vegetables and a protein shake mixed with Naked juice and a Monster energy drink.

Any advice? Be yourself and don’t live by the constraints of society. My favorite motto is “DO YOU, BOO BOO.”

Who are your heroes? Fat Amy (from Pitch Perfect).

Proudest moment? When I became the 2013-2014 Sigma Chi president.

What are you most looking forward to? Being the Sigma Chi President, graduating, joining the marines as an officer, going to law school, and finally becoming a diplomat and working to improve living conditions in third-world countries.
