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.”

Coward Land opens Thursday; see a video trailer

The first play of the Beloit College theatre season, Coward Land, was a 2012 semi-finalist at the National Playwrights Conference held at the famed Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, and penned by our very own David Marcia, a visiting professor in the theatre, dance and media studies department.

You’ll get the opportunity to see it performed from Thursday (Oct. 3) through Saturday (Oct. 5) and from Thursday, Oct. 10 through Saturday, Oct. 12 at 8 p.m. in the Kresge Theatre on the Beloit College campus. In the meantime, you can watch the Coward Land trailer here.

Directed by Marcia, the play centers on three young women in their early 20s played by Orianna O'Neill’16, Samantha Abrams’17, and Silvia Abelson’16.

Amid the wreckage of a wedding day and the end of an empire, they figure out questions like “what if you can’t live where you’re from anymore?,” “what if the only way to better yourself is by oppressing others?” and “who fights our wars for us and why?”

“What makes this play special is that it deals with political and ethical issues in a provocative and entertaining way,” Marcia said. “It's a funny play and it's a scary play, and it engages the audience in a very active way with the intent of making the people who leave the performance a bit different from those who arrived.”

Due to the drama and humor, Coward Land is for mature audiences only. Tickets are $8.50 for general admission, $5 for seniors/faculty and $4 for students. To purchase tickets, call the box office at ext. 2755 Monday - Friday from 12:30 p.m. - 5 p.m.
