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.”

Sing along to Annie at free outdoor screening Wednesday

July 16, 2013 at 1:51 pm

The Beloit International Film Festival, in partnership with Beloit Parks and Leisure Services, will present the 1982 family classic Annie Wednesday (July 17) at  Krueger Pool. The words from each song will appear at the bottom of BIFF’s 20 foot-wide inflatable movie scree,n so audience members can show off their pipes and join in the singing. The audience is also encouraged to come dressed as their favorite Annie character. 

“We are hoping that the audience will be packed with a lot of Annie lookalikes and more than a few Daddy Warbucks and Miss Hannigans,” says Director of Parks & Leisure Services Brian Ramsey. “This is an immensely popular new film phenomenon designed to engage the whole audience.”

The film is scheduled to begin shortly after sunset at 8:30 p.m. Bring lawn chairs and blankets for seating; concessions will be available for purchase.

BIFF Outdoors is a summer program designed to give free screenings of popular and classic films at locations in Beloit, Rockton, and Janesville.

  • The Breakfast Club at Beloit College on Aug.27
  • The original Karate Kid at the Old Settlers Park at the First National Bank office location in Rockton on Sept. 14
  • Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds on Oct. 5.
