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.”

Bikes are being burgled; avoid a theft

September 24, 2013 at 4:51 pm

According to Mike Russell, a hall director in the residential life office, there have been a spate of bike thefts occurring across campus, including several more this past weekend. Below, he talks to the Terrarium about how to avoid losing your wheels, and what to do if it happens.

Terrarium: Any idea how many bikes have gone missing thus far?

Mike Russell: At this point it looks like at least eight reported stolen with an additional few that were unsuccessfully attempted to be stolen since the start of the school year.

T: What should someone do if his/her bike is stolen (report it to security, etc.?)

MR: If a student finds their bike to be stolen, they should call security to file a campus report.  Security can then get that person into contact with the Beloit Police Department if they'd like to file a police report as well. Information that is helpful includes: Make, model, style, color, serial number, any distinguishing characteristics (Terrarium sticker on the frame near the seat?).

T: What do you recommend bike owners do to combat bike theft?

MR: First and foremost, lock your bike up. A few of the bikes that were stolen were left unattended in a bike rack but were not locked. Secondly, store bikes in areas where others will be passing by and has traffic (i.e. not to a random light post in the middle of nowhere). Write down all the information you may need if your bike is stolen and stash it somewhere safe.  Additionally, be aware when you are walking around campus. If you see people lurking around bike racks or just acting suspiciously, call security.
