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.”

See “the world’s only stand-up economist” perform on campus

September 9, 2013 at 7:07 pm

Yoram Bauman Ph.D., billed as “the world’s first and only stand-up economist” will perform on "Comedy, Economics and Climate Change” on Wednesday (Sept. 11) at 7 p.m. in Eaton Chapel.

As a graduate student, Bauman, an environmental economist, discovered his talent for standup comedy, and now uses his comedic powers to entertain and persuade. His Youtube video on the Ten Principles of Economics has 1.1 million views and counting. He has also been featured on PBS NewsHour in both funny and serious modes.

He is the co-author of The Cartoon Introduction to Microeconomics and The Cartoon Introduction to Macroeconomics, which have been translated into 10 different languages. Both books are now regularly adopted in college classrooms around the world.

In addition to his Wednesday night talk, Yoram will be visiting classes and meeting with students interested in economics, environmental issues, and in his experience as an entrepreneurial comedian. His visit is sponsored by the Coleman Foundation Chair in Economics, CELEB, the Department of Economics, and the Environmental Studies Program at Beloit College.
