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.”

Critically acclaimed Hungarian writers on campus Wednesday

September 24, 2013 at 12:22 am

Acclaimed Hungarian writers György Dragomán and Anna Szabó, both former Beloit College exchange students, will return to campus to hold a public reading on Wednesday, Sept. 25. at 8 p.m. in the courtyard of the Wright Museum of Art.

Dragomán is best known for his 2005 novel, The White King, which was excerpted in The New Yorker and the Paris Review and made him famous in Europe. Szabó has published eight books of poetry and is also a children's author and successful playwright.

During their week-long visit, they will also do a public reading, lead a faculty forum and visit classes.

Dragomán and Szabó, who are now married, credit their time at Beloit as formative in their development as artists.

Their trip to Beloit is funded in part by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
