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.”

The Art Department and the Wright Museum are happy to present this year’s Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition, opening Thursday.

The exhibition is open to all Beloit College students, so last week Beloiters from across campus delivered work to the Wright Museum to be juried. This year’s juror, Leslie Smith III, associate professor in painting and drawing at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, spent last Thursday afternoon reviewing the works, identifying the pieces that would make it into the show, and selecting those works to be awarded prizes. Smith is a painter and a native of the Washington, D.C., area with an M.F.A. from the Yale University School of Art.

The exhibit opens on Thursday (Nov. 14) at 4:30 p.m., so come down to the Wright Museum’s south gallery to see the exhibit, mingle with the artists, and find out who will be taking home the Juror’s Award.
