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.”

Beloit and Beyond Bike tour takes on Stateline—on two wheels

July 29, 2013 at 12:00 am

If you’re disappointed that you missed out on joining the RAGBRAI team, don’t worry—you’ve still got a chance to get some serious bike-riding in before the summer ends. This weekend, in fact. That’s when the third annual Beloit and Beyond Bike Tour will take place, offering riders numerous options for touring the area on two wheels.

The free event (though commemorative swag is available for purchase) even, according to its website’s FAQ section, guarantees fun. The sole purpose is to get riders of all ages—family participation is encouraged—out and about on Beloit area bike trails. Nearly 10 routes, ranging in length from four miles to 100 miles (the so-called Full Century Loop), are suggested for the day’s events, with shuttles back to Beloit available from destinations like New Glarus, Brodhead, and the Welty Environmental Center.

(Click here to see the BABB routes.)

Free registration will begin at 6:30 a.m. Saturday in downtown Beloit, behind the Beloit Bicycle Company at 110 W. Grand Ave. Not interested in riding, but want to help out? Volunteer opportunities are also available—learn more about routes, how to volunteer, and details at the Beloit and Beyond Bike Tour website.
