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.”

From Spiritual Life: Rosh Hashanah begins Wednesday

September 1, 2013 at 4:53 pm

Jewish  students, faculty, and staff will soon be observing some of the most important holidays in their  tradition. Please be mindful of their celebrations as the “Ten Days of Awe” begin at sunset Wednesday (Sept. 4), with Rosh Hashanah—the new year in the Jewish calendar—which concludes on Friday (Sept. 6).  

All are invited to a student-led Rosh Hashanah celebration Thursday (Sept. 5) at 4 p.m. in D.K.’s.

Yom Kippur, also called the Day of Atonement, is focused on repentance and forgiveness in order to re-establish oneness with God; it starts at sunset on Sept. 13 and goes through Sept. 14.  There are restrictions against work for both of these holidays, along with some food restrictions and special worship throughout.  Find out more at, or click here for more information about college policy regarding religious holidays and excused absences from class and/or work.
