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.”

Inaugural “Lunchbox Series” event presents investing advice from Warren Palmer (video)

October 24, 2013 at 7:00 am

Would you like a side of knowledge with your sandwich?

A new series, the Lunchbox Series, will debut next Tuesday (Oct. 29) with “Investing Calmly in Troubled Times," a lecture by Warren Palmer, economics professor and the Coleman Foundation Chair in Entrepreneurship.

The series gives professors a chance to share their knowledge not only with the campus community--who are all invited to bring a lunch and watch the lecture Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. in Moore Lounge next week--but the greater Beloit community and public, who can tune in live at and watch the lecture in real time.

Palmer will speak on the complications of investing in an uncertain market.

“Let’s think about how to invest calmly in troubled times even with the cacophony of financial news and financial pundits ringing in our ears,” he says.

So--see you there, or tune in and join us from the comfort of wherever you are in the world next Tuesday.
