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.”

One week from today: #looksmart with Advising Practicum 2013

October 22, 2013 at 6:22 pm

You’ve got exactly one week until it’s time to look smart. Next Wednesday--Oct. 30--Beloit will host Advising Practicum 2013, a day dedicated to taking a close look at your academic and educational path.

Graduate School: What to Do When, Why your major doesn’t−and does−matter, Condoms, Bookmarks, and Gourds: How to Get Hands-On in the Beloit Community and Making the Most of Your Summer are just a few of the topics on the docket.

The day begins with first-year students participating in special advising sessions with their FYI seminar leaders and classmates, followed by concurrent workshops open to all students on topics ranging from “No Job is a Bad Job,” “Communicating the Value of your Liberal Arts Education to Employers,” and “Money Matters.” Sessions are led by professors, staff, and other students and alumni in panel-discussions, who can provide insight on their own paths.

The last half of the day is devoted to departmental sessions, which give students the opportunity to receive in-depth advising about specific programs and majors; many departments will also be hosting lunches.

Read more about Beloit’s efforts on academic advising here, and follow the conversation on Oct. 30 at #looksmart and #beadvised. Keep your eyes peeled this weekend and next week for our traveling Polaroid frames--if you tag a picture and upload it with the #looksmart or #beadvised hashtags, you’ll be eligible to win some Beloit winter gear in a random drawing.
