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.”

Mandela biopic screened Monday night: RSVP required

December 9, 2013 at 7:47 am

As part of this semester’s grand prize of ONE Campus Challenge, the student organization ONE @ Beloit  has been awarded a private screening of the upcoming film, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, a biopic on Mandela’s life featuring Idris Elba.

ONE at Beloit 

ONE is a nonpartisan advocacy organization aimed at addressing poverty and preventable disease in Africa, and Beloit College was one of only 10 schools in the nation to earn a screening of the biopic.

In order to earn the viewing--the film has not yet been released, and is already receiving Oscar buzz--ONE @ Beloit organized two candlelight study sessions, created a presentation about Electrify Africa which they used to raise awareness in multiple classroom visits, and made two deliveries to their Congressional representative, dropping off 90 handwritten letters.

The recently deceased Nelson Mandela spoke eloquently about the parallels between the fight against apartheid and the fight against extreme poverty, making this biographical film a fitting tribute to the efforts of eradicating poverty and disease in Africa.

Beloit College students are invited to attend the free, pre-release screening Monday (Dec. 9) at 7 p.m. at Luxury 10 movie theatres in Beloit, but MUST RSVP to attend.

Click on the link to RSVP; that online reservation serves as your ticket, and ONE members will check you in at the theatre door.
