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.”

Beloit’s power plant initiative featured in Architect magazine article

December 17, 2013 at 7:57 am

In its Dec. 11 article, “Power Converters,” Architect magazine explored how power plants offer an excellent opportunity to reuse and reclaim valuable city parcels.

Along with other high-profile projects in Washington, D.C., and Austin, Texas, Beloit College’s newly embarked initiative to convert a nearby power plant into an activity and recreation center was featured in the article.

Dan Schooff, Beloit College’s project manager for the power plant conversion, and Jeanne Gang, whose Chicago-based Studio Gang architectural firm is leading the conversion efforts, were interviewed for the article, both discussing the project’s merits and challenges.

“It requires care at every step,” Schooff said in the article. “It’s much more complicated than building a new building. But we think the payoff is worth it.”
