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.”

Student employees keep the library running in many ways, including shelving books and answering inquiries in the Archives. In honor of the nine student workers who graduated in 2013, the library has purchased books and DVDs selected by each of them. Three of these students offer insights into their selections, which you can see on display now in the library.

Title: Young adult literature and adolescent identity across cultures

and classrooms: contexts for the literary lives of teens

Author: Janet Alsup.

“I chose my book for two reasons. I conceptualize my studies at Beloit as studying the development of identities. I also wanted to reflect my interest in youth literature and how it helps construct youth identities.”

Title: The Simpsons in the classroom : embiggening the learning experience with the wisdom of Springfield

Author: Karma Waltonen

“I chose the Simpsons book because I'm a huge fan of the show. It started a year before I was born so I've been watching it since I was little—I even had a little pink Marge purse growing up. This book discusses how The Simpsons illustrate different social and cultural theories. Because of it, I now don't feel as guilty for watching the show for hours—I really was just studying!”

Title: That workshop book: new systems and structures for classrooms that read, write, and think

Author: Samantha Bennett

“This book offers tangible and practical ideas for interactive learning experiences in the classroom. There are several teachers profiled with examples of successful reading and writing workshops. I'm interested in the creation of a classroom culture that facilitates spontaneous learning and this book is a great resource.”
