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.”

Commencement countdown: do you have your gown? (fast facts)

May 6, 2013 at 8:53 pm

In less than a week, the class of 2013 will be walking across the stage in front of Middle College (fingers crossed for good weather—but President Bierman has a great track record in that regard).

Whether you’re a graduating student or a faculty or staff member walking in the ceremony, there are a few things you should know. Events preceding Commencement include a cookout Wednesday night in front of Commons; the Senior Gala Thursday at 7 p.m.; a reception for seniors and their parents at the President’s House, Saturday from 3 p.m. until 4 p.m., followed by Baccalaureate in Eaton Chapel.

For the most detailed outline of the day’s events—complete with parking and hotel information, and the times/locations of departmental receptions—visit


1)      The due-date to order your cap and gown from Turtle Creek bookstore was last Monday, April 29. Haven’t done it yet? Call the Turtle Creek bookstore ASAP at (608) 363-2375.

2)      Where to be, when: all graduating seniors should be in front of WAC by 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Commencement day. If you’re receiving an honor cord, get there by 10:15 a.m. Class marshals will help you line up alphabetically by last name, in two sections: B.A. candidates first, B.S. candidates second.
