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.”

Campus improvements ongoing as new semester begins

August 23, 2013 at 6:18 am

While students were away, the college used the Renewing the Historic Core fund to work on everything from the bike rack outside of WAC to the carpets of Whitney.

“This has been a busy summer and we’re thankful for all the positive feedback about the improvements,” says Lori Rhead, vice president for human resources and operations. “We’re hoping you’ll be patient with us as we work to wrap up these projects.  The work, and the dust and disruption that comes with it, should be completed by mid-September if the weather cooperates.”

Not all work is complete, so below we’ve compiled some pictures of the areas that have seen some improvements, and offer an update on some of those works-in-progress.

North side:

Whitney has seen fresh interior paint and carpeting.

Russian House - new windows and insulation, new roof being installed now, will be re-sided too. We believe students will be able to move in, but there will be more work to do.

Campus Renovations 2 

Theta is being resided (the contractor came out already to match the color of blue), already had trim work done, and the door is being worked on, too. That work is ongoing.

Campus Renovations 1 

815, next to LAPC, is going to require extensive work. The upper railing and overgrown vegetation were removed, and the fascia and stucco sections of the house repainted and repaired. This work uncovered several issues, and to be safe the building is braced—this bracing could remain up for most of the academic year.

Campus Renovations 5 

South side:

WAC has a new porch, and doors will be installed shortly; a new bike rack is already in place, and lights are expected to be installed late next month.

Campus Renovations 6 

Morse-Ingersoll has seen new landscaping, some new iron work, and interior work including work in Richardson.

Campus Renovations 4 

Logan Museum doors are being replaced and should be installed soon.

Finally: this fall they are intending to treat the college's ash trees, and at least some of our oaks. Stay tuned for more information on that process.
