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.”

September 27, 2013 at 7:06 am

In U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Colleges” issue—on newsstands now—Beloit College tied for No. 59 in the category of the top 240 liberal arts colleges nationwide.

Beloit was also included in the category of A-Plus Schools for B Students, a non-ranked listing of 76 national liberal arts colleges where good students – B students – have a “decent shot of being accepted and thriving.”

In addition, Beloit was one of four Wisconsin colleges and universities to be profiled in the “Take a Road Trip” feature, which also included select higher education institutions from California and Virginia.

“Students are given ownership of their academic path (with guidance), and taking the scenic route is encouraged,” reporter Kelsey Sheehy wrote of Beloit.

Other online-only categories Beloit was included in were: Best Undergrad Teaching (No. 10 on a list of 18 national liberal arts colleges), Up-and-Comers (tied at No. 6 on a short list of national liberal arts colleges), and Strong Focus on Student Success – Study Abroad (a non-ranked listing of 31 national colleges and universities).
