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.”

Convocation: kick off the semester with a Beloit tradition

August 25, 2013 at 7:40 pm

What: Convocation, the official opening of the academic year
When: Monday (Aug. 26)
Time: 4:15 p.m.
Location: Eaton Chapel

Steeped in tradition, Convocation is the official end of summer and beginning of the academic year. The chapel is packed, the excitement builds, and it may just be your first chance to hear “Oh Beloit!” sung, in person.

First-years: Head to College Street with the rest of your FYI and your FYI advisor—this will take place about 3:50 p.m., and you’ll walk with the procession to the chapel.

Returning students: See you at the chapel at 4:15 p.m.

Faculty and staff: If you haven’t done so already, make sure to pick up your cap and gown from the Communications & Marketing office. (For your convenience, boxes and an attendant will be on the porch of Communications & Marketing after Convocation, and you can return your gowns there immediately, if you’d like.) At the right side of this post you’ll see the marching list; arrive at Chapin quad (in front of Commons) by 3:50 p.m. sharp. After the marshals have, well, marshaled everyone, the procession will leave Chapin quad, at about 4:10 p.m.

Reminder: Staff, faculty, remember to attend President Bierman and Melody Bierman’s Open House immediately following Convocation, at 709 College St.
