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.”

IT updates customer service, software; what you need to know

September 22, 2013 at 11:00 pm


Over the summer, the college’s information technology department combined the help desk services in Mayer and created plans to provide more consistent technology services at the Tech Help Desk in the library. In order to facilitate reference to all these spaces, they renamed them. The help desk in Mayer is now "IT Support in Mayer" and the desk in the library is "IT Support in the Library.”

In addition, IT staff have developed a more enhanced training program for the IT student assistants who provide frontline support at the IT support desks. They are learning enhanced customer service skills and are gaining a higher level of technology knowledge. The goal is for the IT student assistants to answer more questions and resolve more issues over the phone, then pass on the more complicated tasks to IT staff members. This process will be tracked using the new SchoolDude software, accessible through the Portal. They are also helping IT staff with a variety of tasks such as computer imaging, lab setups, and inventory control.

If you need technical assistance or have any questions, please submit a request through SchoolDude or stop by the IT support areas in Mayer Hall or the Library. Log in to the Portal to locate the SchoolDude page, which contains links for support and password information. The hours for each IT support location are available on the IT Support web page.
