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.”

Muslim and American: Beloiters share their perspective

November 5, 2013 at 7:51 pm

What’s it like to be Muslim and American?  

This will be the topic of an upcoming panel discussion featuring a professor and student from Beloit College, and a member of the Beloit Muslim Center Monday (Nov. 11) at 7 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium.

Beloit College Professor of Religious Studies Debra Majeed will moderate the panel, which is composed of Beloit College teaching fellow Catherine Bronson, who teaches Arabic and Islamic studies, Beloit College sophomore Mohammed Abbed’16, and Salih Erschen, a member of the Beloit Muslim Center.

“When you say ‘Muslim’ and ‘American’ in the same breath, it can bring up a lot of controversy and confusion in post-9/11 America,” said Bill Conover, director of Beloit College’s Spiritual Life Program and the organizer of the event. “But under those two little words are some very complex and generally misunderstood personal and social realities. Beyond the noise and confusion of the controversy, millions of Muslim-Americans defy stereotypes by the actual commitments and choices they make every day. We’re hoping to give people the opportunity to ask questions and hear three Muslim-Americans tell about the blessings and challenges of their lives.”

The panel discussion is the first in a series organized by Beloit College called Intersections, which aims to explore the social identities that make us who we are. Each month, a new intersection of social identities will be explored. In January, the focus will be on the experience of being "mixed race," and in February, the intersection explored will be "immigrant" and "American."

Sponsors of the Intersections series include the Spiritual Life Program, the Office of Intercultural Affairs, the department of critical identity studies, and the department of philosophy and religious studies of Beloit College.
