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.”

Where did you study aboard?

What are the three most important things you packed in your suitcase? Why?

  1. Shorts. It’s really hot so dress for the weather.
  2. Toothbrush--nobody likes stinky breath.
  3. Malaria medication--take it when you’re supposed to! A few people in my program skipped pills and paid the price. As you can imagine, it wasn’t pleasant.

What is the most unexpected thing you encountered during your off-campus study experience? The most unexpected thing was being approached on the street and asked to be in a movie. Apparently they needed a white person. I agreed and spent the next few days filming in a town called Abri.

What is the best meal you’ve had abroad? I never got tired of rice and veggie stew.

What did you miss most from home/Beloit? I missed the variety of food. I’m not saying that Ghanaian food is bad, but I was used to having more options.

What has been your proudest/most exciting moment abroad? My proudest moment was when my fellow cast members and I received a standing ovation for our performance. That’s a good feeling anywhere, but it’s cooler in Ghana. I got the, “they really like me!” feeling.

What did you bring home as a souvenir? A huge elephant mask. It’s looking at me as I write this.
