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.”

Catch a Lunchbox Series lecture with Marion Field Fass

December 2, 2013 at 7:36 am

"The Lunchbox Series" presents: "Possible Pandemics: Ecology, Evolution and Opportunity," a lecture with Professor Marion Field Fass, pictured here.

Catch a Lunchbox Series lecture with Marion Fass 

Influenza killed millions of people in 1918; HIV/AIDS continues to take its toll despite research, education, and medical advances. These pandemics warn us of challenges we face as climate change and urbanization alter the interactions between humans and other species. The high rate of mutation in viruses makes them adaptable pathogens.

Fass will look at new perspectives on ecology, evolution, communication, and political will, as well as surprising concerns about the diseases of the future Thursday (Dec. 5) in the latest installment of the Lunchbox Series. She will deliver the lecture at 12:10 p.m. in Moore Lounge of Pearsons Hall--if you’re on campus, bring your lunch and your questions.
