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.”

From the Middle: Reserved parking for Admissions guests coming, Bon Appetit developments discussed

November 8, 2013 at 6:20 am

The college’s senior staff convened on Monday in Middle College. Attached is a brief run-down of some of the issues, items and news discussed.

Four slots in Guest House lot are being reserved for Admissions guests

Based on an admissions visit audit performed last month by a consultant group, Vice President Nancy Benedict (along with Director of Communications Jason Hughes) brought forward a proposal to reserve four campus parking spaces for admissions guests. In the coming weeks, two of the guest house slots just off Chapin Street, along with two currently unmarked parking spots, will get new signage. The slots will be reserved for visiting admissions guests (potential students and their parents/guardians) between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Document retention and destruction policies discussed

In recognition of the disclosure requirements for the College’s 990 Tax Form, Vice President for Finance and Planning Laurie Stickelmaier brought forward a new policy for the group to discuss-- this time related to document retention and destruction. While no document was presented for approval, senior staff did weigh in on the kind of policy that might be best, based on Stickelmaier’s recommendation. Once approved, such a policy will be added to the website, where similar policies created and approved in the last few months are being loaded.


Group hears about changes announced by Bon Appetit owner, Compass Group

As was detailed in Tuesday’s Terrarium (“College and Bon Appetit management concerned by changes”), a portion of this week’s senior staff meeting was spent hearing about changes announced by Bon Appetit’s parent company that might alter some employees’ status with the food service provider, and as a result, their access to benefits. As of this posting, no new details have come to light. Any additional news will be shared via the Terrarium.
