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.”

Documentary focuses on health care crisis, plus panel discussion

September 16, 2013 at 7:49 am

Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Health Care will be screened Tuesday at 7 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium, followed by a panel discussion.

Beloit will be among the over 90 locations across the country that will be screening the 2012 award-winning documentary on Sept. 17.

“We’re showing it because we’re concerned about the crisis in American health care,” said Marion Field Fass, professor of biology and health and society at Beloit College, who organized the event.

Fass will moderate the panel discussion featuring Ron Nikora, an assistant professor of health and society at Beloit, and Tracy Saladar, RN, CPNP from the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Nursing.

“What’s nice about this movie is it not only illustrates the problems in American health care, but it also works on presenting solutions,” Fass said. “With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, we’ll be seeing lots of changes in the health care system and the potential for great improvement in creating an environment that is healthier for all Americans.”
