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.”

Summer Symposium: schedule set

May 8, 2013 at 10:11 pm

Obviously Senior Gala, Baccalaureate, and Commencement are at the forefront of everyone’s focus this week, as it should be. But as the festivities die down, we’d like to get something on faculty and staff’s radar: Summer Symposium 2013.

This year’s event is taking place Wednesday, May 15. Organizers want you to face the day with plenty of energy, so they’re hosting a breakfast in Commons to kick things off; at that breakfast, they’ll recognize staff members for their years of service, and present this year’s Bill Behling Award winner.

At 9:45 a.m., 10:45 a.m., and 11:45 a.m., concurrent sessions covering everything from campus security to tours of the residence halls will take place, with three sessions to choose from at each time slot. Most sessions will take place in the Mathers or Moore Lounge rooms in Pearsons.

Check the Terrarium next week for more details, and we’ll see you there!
