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.”

After/Words: art meets poetry at the Wright Museum

December 2, 2013 at 7:34 am

After/Words is the culmination of a semester-long journey partaken by English 210, a poetry workshop under the guidance of Francesca Abbate, the 2013-14 George S. Parker Curator.

Early in the semester, students enrolled in the course visited the Wright Museum of Art and, working closely with Museum Director Joy Beckman and Curator James Pearson, chose works of art from the Wright Museum’s collections that spoke to the respective students. After that, the students researched their chosen work, spent time with it, mulled over it, let it consume them, and, over the course of a number of weeks, produced a series of poems that, in some way, relate to the work.

The exhibit includes works by Salvador Dali, Francisco de Goya, and Wasiily Kandinsky to name a few. The exhibit opens on Thursday, and an opening reception from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. will include a live reading of the student poems.
