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.”

Meet Owen Boardman’14; see him in The Memorandum

November 22, 2013 at 8:00 am

Owen Boardman 2

Name: Owen Boardman’14

Hometown: St. Paul, Minn.

Major/minor: Sociology and critical identity studies.

What brought me to Beloit: The school stressed critical thinking without sounding pretentious.

My favorite class so far, and why you should take it: Intro to Feminism (now Sex and Power). You should take it because it teaches you how to apply theory to real life experiences.

You may have seen me: The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Popcorn, and 10,000 AD Sketch Comedy.

The best book I’ve read at Beloit: The Women of Brewster Place.

Why you should come see me in The Memorandum: Because you like to laugh while feeling mildly uncomfortable.

Favorite meal? Steak and deep-fried cheese curds.    

Who are your top-three fantasy dinner party guests? James Brown, Dave Chappelle, and R. Kelly (just to ask him about the creative process behind Trapped in the Closet).

Who are your heroes? Andre 3000 and Michel Foucault. I also have at least five heroes on campus, but I would feel awkward if they knew who they were.    

What can't you live without? Friends (not the show).
