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.”

Live streamed Lunchbox Series features Powerhouse project’s architectural firm (video)

November 10, 2013 at 6:01 pm

The 2013 National Design Award-Winning Chicago architectural firm Studio Gang will be the focus of the next installment of the Beloit College Lunchbox Series on Thursday (Nov. 14) at 12:10 p.m. in Moore Lounge of Pearsons Hall. Beloit has hired Studio Gang to convert a nearby decommissioned power plant into a riverside activity and recreation center.

In the approximately 30-minute live-streamed event, MacArthur Fellow and principal Jeanne Gang and her team from Studio Gang will discuss how they approach projects and what attracted them to the Beloit power plant project.

In a discussion moderated by Dean Klawitter, Gang and her team will be introduced, discuss how they want to engage with the Beloit College community, and present early thoughts about the potential challenges and opportunities this project presents. The event will also feature a Q & A, so Beloiters on campus should stop by Moore Lounge with their questions.
