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.”

Pop culture and philosophy, featuring Matt Tedesco (video)

December 3, 2013 at 7:44 am

“I think there can be a misconception about philosophy, that it’s not about questions that matter to our lives,” says Associate Professor of Philosophy Matt Tedesco. In a new video, he posits that that sentiment couldn’t be further from the truth, using pop culture as a frame of reference.

For example--James Bond, with his license to kill. Is it morally problematic that he’s engaging in assassination? Is a Facebook friendship really a friendship, and how can Aristotle help answer that question? How does Game of Thrones relate to biomedical ethics?

Tedesco has published several essays in books connecting philosophy to pop culture; learn more in the video below.
