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.”

UPDATE: Run with the President, Provost, and Dean

August 22, 2013 at 6:40 am

If you didn’t know it already, you’ll learn it soon: our president (Scott Bierman), provost (Ann Davies) and dean of students (Christina Klawitter’98) are all runners. From the Turtle Trot to the upcoming Olde English classic, these administrators three seem to appreciate an opportunity to take a run with students.

This Thursday (Aug. 22) at 4 p.m., President Bierman, Provost Davies, and Dean Klawitter will continue the tradition with a run for students, faculty, and staff. Walkers are also encouraged to join them. Get out, get some fresh air, see a bit of Beloit, and hit the ground running this semester. Oh…and get a free T-shirt for your trouble!


The run/walk will begin on the steps of Middle College, circle around Eaton Chapel and up College Street toward Commons before looping down the hill and crossing Highway 51 at the stoplight. Beloiters will then go under the bridge, at which point:

  • Walkers will loop around the lagoon in Riverside Park before returning to campus (about two miles, total).
  • Runners will go up the river to Henry Avenue Bridge and back (three miles or so, all told).
