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.”

Over break, the Liberal Arts in Practice Center and Development & Alumni Relations collaborated on a trip to Milwaukee for six students. The goal of the trip was to provide students with an understanding of for-profit business, from hiring practices to skills gained in a liberal arts education that are applicable in business to navigating organizational culture. The agenda is attached below, but here are a few highlights:

  • Site tour of Koss Corporation and business workshop on reading balance sheets, by CEO Michael Koss (see photo below)
  • Alumni panel about careers in business, with alumni Liz Ziner, Nate Fair, Zak Williams, and Kathy Ramirez
  • Personal tour of MSOE's Grohmann Museum's Man at Work Collection by alumnus James Kieselburg

Students also attended workshops that helped with resume development, interviewing skills, and learning how to adapt to the culture of business.

The students involved were: Mackenzie Endress, Alex Keesey, Dayton Bennett, Kejia Hu, Minh Nguyen, and Christopher Cadavid.

LAPC also took 10 students to the University of Illinois-Chicago Graduate School Fair over break.
