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.”

Fire in Emerson Hall Apartments

September 24, 2013 at 7:50 pm

UPDATE (8:35 p.m.): Beloit Fire Department has finished putting out the fire in Emerson Hall and the Red Cross is now in the Presidents Lounge in Commons, assisting a few dozen of the apartment building's residents with relocation arrangements. They expect to have all residents placed with family, friends, or in a local hotel within the next few hours. 

Thanks again to all students, staff and faculty who were on hand tonight to reassure residents, help displaced people into Commons, and to Commons staff who stayed open late to provide support, food and drinks.


City of Beloit and South Beloit fire departments are currently on College Street and the northeast corner of campus responding to a fire at Emerson Hall Apartments (which is not part of college student housing). While first responders have indicated there is no threat to campus at this time (or nearby Brannon Hall), please avoid the area as work continues this evening. 

Smoke is still visible in the building at this hour, which suggests that the fire may not be completely out at this point. 

Thank you to those of you who were assisting our neighbors who were evacuated tonight. College security officers and student life staff have invited the Emerson Hall residents (many of whom are senior citizens) to join us in Commons while the fire departments continue their work.
