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.”

A big, first step toward student timesheets on the portal is complete

October 7, 2013 at 5:42 pm

Human Resources is reporting that they now have nearly 750 student positions submitted through the portal. After supervisors submit a new student hire form, a report is generated, allowing payroll to manually enter the positions into a payroll module in Jenzabar in order to process payroll payments.

"This is one giant step forward," says Lori Rhead, vice president for human resources and operations. "It's even more impressive because of the size of the group that made that move, virtually in lock step."

It’s a move that will ultimately simplify the student-worker payroll process, says payroll coordinator Gail Pateros.

“Campus has really embraced our attempt to make the student payroll process easier,” Pateros says. “We're thrilled with the level of cooperation we've received--nearing 750 positions submitted--and how much easier the October student payroll will be because of it. Kudos to campus!”

In the past, the college’s payroll and financial aid offices did not know where students were working until time sheets were turned in for payment at the end of each month. This meant that every month, employees in payroll had to race to enter all new student positions into Jenzabar before that month's payroll could be processed, creating last-minute stress and the need to rush.

“This month, the new portal form allowed us to complete and proof data entry before time sheets arrived in our office,” Pateros explains. “We were able to enter information from a single, detailed report rather than from multiple time sheets. Again, consistent and accurate. A much more efficient and far less stressful option for everyone.”

Moving forward, utilizing this new form will alert supervisors instantly when students are not authorized to work on campus, before those students are allowed to start working. It will streamline the process for supervisors and students to obtain campus work authorization, and eliminate the last-minute stress created by end of the month data entry and time sheet surprises.
