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.”

BSC candidates

Selene Castrucci’17
In the fall 2013 semester I was the freshman class representative in General Assembly, and unlike the U.S. Government we did not shut down, so might as well vote me in again.

Although I only have a semester of being a COO representative for the OEC under my belt, I am a positive, enthusiastic, learner who is dedicated to making BSC a more cohesive and inclusive entity. I am really interested in fostering collaborations between clubs, departments, other committees and organizations.  These collaborations will help create a more united feel across campus and cause cross-pollination of different social groups. It will also help create similarities and relationships between seemingly contrasting groups.  I am engaged in a wide range of clubs and organizations like OEC, women’s center, 10,000 A.D., karaoke club, and Theta. One of the most powerful element of Beloit is the passionate, multi-interested student body that embody the renaissance ideal. The student body has so many innovative ideas that BSC can help make a reality; I hope to inspire people to strive to their full potential. I can contribute ideas on sustainability, morale-building, social media, and unique collaborations. I would love to be part of the process that makes Beloit the best Beloit it can be.

I've been thinking a lot lately about the buzz words that we commonly hear or use at this institution, especially ‘Beloitish’ and ‘liberal arts.’  As I think more about it, I think that the bottom line is that Beloit is a place that encourages and cultivates exploration in students' identity, education, and future endeavors.

In my last semester at Beloit, I want to be able to continue to explore and help students further explore their identity as Beloiters and how they can positively impact their communities and selves at this institution. I see BSC as an important site that allows Beloiters do just this. As I reflect on the time here and what I’ve been involved in, from being an RA, a Senior Class Officer, to my internship at Stateline Literacy Council, I have been able to explore the ‘Beloitish’ liberal arts for myself and encourage others to do the same.

I fell in love with Beloit the moment I stepped on its campus when I was still applying to college. It was that cliche "I belong here" moment. Four years later, I still love Beloit. I think our students are intelligent and interesting. I'm proud of us. I want to continue my position as a Senior Class Representative because I want to keep being proud of us. I want BSC to make decisions that represent our campus. I'm involved in a variety of activities, from Theta to Round Table to Judicial Board, with friends and acquaintances that extend far beyond my involvement. This range allows me to talk with many different students about their opinions, values, and what would make them continue to be proud to be a Beloiter.
