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: Terrarium gets streamlined

August 27, 2013 at 5:18 pm

As you might have noticed, the Terrarium has been tweaked this morning. The impetus behind the redesign? Besides wanting to freshen things up for the new year, college Web Designer and Developer Amanda Frisbee used her considerable talents to create a more streamlined, user-friendly site.

Besides the pared-down approach, all of the information is the same, but, we hope, more accessible, with social media links, the daily menu, the weather report, and the campus master calendar all at the fore.

Terrarium changes aren't the only thing you'll notice this morning. Several other major updates to the website have occurred. Here's a quick breakdown:

Banner photos hidden for on-campus users

While the large, banner-style photos our new site employs have been popular with potential students and parents, our on-campus community has regular access to such views (on and offline). Many faculty and staff have asked if changes could be made to limit scrolling past those photos on their pages. As a result, the web services team has removed those images altogether--but only for on-campus site visitors. Regular photos--such as those placed by departments and offices on their individual pages--won't be impacted. Only the top, banner-style photos will be hidden when someone is online via the campus network.

Update (Aug. 28):  As a part of this morning's changes, it was web services intention to also test and, if possible, deploy a new drop down navigation on While the other web enhancements were successfully launched, the web services identified a few issues with the navigation set up that they'll be working out in the days ahead. Expect an update (and those new drop-downs) in the near future. 

In an email to campus, Jason Hughes, director of communications at the college, offered thanks to "those of you who kindly offered suggestions and the interest that informed all of these developments. We hope you find that the changes enrich your experience on" If you have feedback or suggestions to offer, please contact  Melissa Dix, web and new media director.
