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.”

Baccalaureate basics: what’s new in this senior week tradition

May 7, 2013 at 9:35 pm

Beloit’s Baccalaureate has been a tradition almost as long as Commencement—it’s been around since 1851, according to College Archivist Fred Burwell.

Though the event has evolved tremendously since then, it still remains an essential part of Beloit’s senior week, right down to the comic routines, dances, musical performances, and, at times, belly dancing.

This year, Baccalaureate will take place Saturday (May 11) at 4:45 p.m. in Eaton Chapel. New to the program is a selection of work by senior artists, which will be displayed in the outdoor space between the chapel and the President’s House.

As usual, class officers will deliver the class gift, seniors will sing, dance, and read original prose; Director of Community-Based Learning Carol Wickersham will offer the keynote address, “What We Have Learned From You.” And what would be any Beloit event steeped in tradition without a rendition of Domine Salvum Fac? It will be sung immediately after the program, as everyone gathers around Rostra Beloitensia, the gift of the class of 1906.


Have family or friends who would love to be there, but can’t make it to Baccalaureate in person?  Tell them they can watch it live at
