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.”

Hiker in Chief: President Bierman talks about hiking the el Camino de Santiago

November 13, 2013 at 7:13 am

We all know he likes to run, but do you also know he hikes? President Scott Bierman will be giving a public presentation on “Hiking el Camino de Santiago” tomorrow (Thursday) Nov. 14 at 6:30 p.m. in Moore Lounge. The presentation will detail a hiking trip President Bierman and his daughter undertook in Spain several years ago along the famous trail, which in English means “The Way of St. James.” The trail is traditionally a route of pilgrimage to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela located in Galicia in northern Spain. Legend supports that the site of note is where the apostle Saint James is buried.

Associate Professor and Mouat Junior Professor of International Studies Pablo Toral said he would be attending the presentation “to learn more about the President’s spiritual journey, and more about the Rock Trail Coalition’s efforts to build the Peace Trail between Beloit and Janesville.”

The event, sponsored by the Rock Trail Coalition, is free and open to the public.
