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.”

Space for innovation: new technology for digital storytelling, updated space

August 11, 2013 at 11:23 pm

Innovation space 1

The Innovation Space, formerly known as MeTS and immediately to the right of the main entrance, is now up and running in Morse Library.

This newly upgraded and redesigned space offers software such as Adobe Design Suite, Final Cut Pro, and iWorks Suite. You'll also find equipment for the creation of digital media projects here. The space was revamped due in large part to faculty and student requests for such a resource.

“The most important changes in this space is what faculty and students will be able to do with the new technology,” explains Jedidiah Rex, manager of instructional technology.

The Innovation Space now contains:

  • 7 audio/video editing stations
  • A group collaboration space
  • 3 flatbed and 2 high-volume document scanners
  • All new computers, dual-booted to run Windows and Mac operating systems.

“The other big thing is that the same software that is installed in the Innovation Space, is also installed in the Learning Studio,” Rex says. “The Learning Studio will provide a place where faculty and students can learn how to use the applications and also be open at other times as a work space as well. The two spaces were designed to complement one another in this way.”

Anyone interested in learning more about and/or using the technology in these spaces can contact Rex (, ext. 2456) or Adam Dinnes (, ext. 2576) who are happy to provide demonstrations and assistance.

Personnel will also be available at the IT support desk in the library Mondays through Thursdays 2 p.m. until 1 a.m.,  Fridays 4 10 p.m,. and Sundays 4 p.m. to 1 a.m.
