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.”

International poetry reading, in pictures

November 21, 2013 at 7:15 am

It’s an annual International Education Week favorite, and this year’s iteration continued to prove popular with a fantastic turnout.

According to Sylvia Lopez, co-chair of the modern languages and literatures department:

“Over 100 students, faculty, and staff turned out to imbibe poetry from around the world. For an hour and a half audience members were treated to the melodious voices of those who read in Albanian, Bosnian, English, Chinese, Czech, French, Galician, German, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Spanish, Vietnamese, Yoruba as well as Ancient Greek and Latin.  While most participants read poetry by renowned poets, a few read their own poems. One participant even read, in translation of course, a poem by her furry friend Shirley the cat.”

Nick Mischler’14 captured the event, which took place in the Java Joint Tuesday night, in photos:
