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.”

What’s on your bucket list? My bucket list might be a little unnecessarily long, so I'll just leave you with a couple of items from it in no particular order. 1) Return to Alicante, Spain, where I spent the autumn of my junior year, to see my host family and other friends. 2) Learn to do a handstand and then to walk on my hands. 3) Compete in a marathon and in a triathlon.

What can’t you live without? Chocolate. I might be slightly addicted because I will never ever turn down something chocolate.

Any advice? As a Beloit College student you are surrounded by more opportunities than you have ever had before and probably will ever have in the future. They are countless! Take advantage of every opportunity that you can, ask for help when you need it and try to use all of the resources here to your benefit. Don't leave here wishing that you would have done or tried something. Just do it!

What’s your favorite hidden gem here in the area? Not very many people know that the best pizza in the area comes from Tony and Maria's on Madison Road (no, it is not Ana Maria's in So. Beloit). It's owned and operated by a middle-aged guy named Tony and his family. Every single time I go into the place, I see his very old mother stirring a huge pot of sauce while his even older father is kneading a big ball of dough in the back of the store. I've only ever heard Tony’s parents using Italian.
