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.”

Creative Writing class heads to the woods (pic)

In order to preempt the doldrums of impending finals, English Professor Shawn Gillen treated his creative writing students (Introduction to Creative Writing, English 205) to a trip to poet Lorine Niedecker’s former cabin near Fort Atkinson, Wis., last week.

“We talked about her work and the writing life and tried to forget that it was 16 degrees above zero outside,” Gillen says. “We drove out to Niedecker's cabin after reading one of her books (The Granite Pail) and studying her poetry.”

Students are in the midst of working on their own poems for Gillen’s class. After the jaunt to the cabin, the class stopped by Fort Atkinson for lunch.

“It was a nice, chilly getaway before the rush of finals,” Gillen says.

Trivia: Niedecker attended Beloit for two years before she left to tend to her mother, who had gone deaf.
