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.”

What was your favorite place in your host city/country? My favorite place in Seoul is a district called Hongdae, which is a really cool place full of street vendors, unique clothing shops, restaurants, street performers, and open areas where youth from the nearby universities come and hang out. It has great nightlife too, since bars, clubs, and restaurants are open in the evening. There's always people playing music or doing dance performances, and there's a park in the middle of it all where you can go hang out with people.

What did you miss most from home/Beloit? I missed having American-style breakfast food a lot, like eggs, bacon, pancakes, and orange juice. The breakfasts I had in Korea tended to be a type of Korean rice roll called Kimbap, which is kind of like sushi. It was really good, but some days I just wanted some eggs and hash browns.

What is the biggest difference between Beloit and your host city/university? Similarity? The biggest differences between my university in Seoul and Beloit was Beloit is in such a small town compared to the city of Seoul. It was really interesting and fun to go to school in a big city, and having so many shops and restaurants and events so close by, rather than having to drive to cities like Chicago or Madison for city life. I miss the city, but I also missed having the more natural campus of Beloit.

What was the best meal you had abroad? I'm in love with all Korean food, but my favorite meal was actually a Japanese dish called Oyako-donburi, which is chicken and egg over rice. Also, Cup Chicken was a really popular street food snack that I would often get. It's basically bits of fried chicken, tater tots, and a thick dumpling called Ddeok, all mixed together with a spicy tangy sauce. It's a perfect on-the-go snack, and really addicting!
