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.”

Beloiters meet with environmental NGO, garner praise (pics)

Students in Associate Professor of Political Science Pablo Toral’s Global Political Ecology course recently traveled to Minneapolis to meet up with Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness. The Friends are watching the development of a couple of mining projects on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Wilderness Area, and asked Toral’s students to prepare a report on the economics and politics of mining, with a focus on four metals: platinum, palladium, copper, and nickel. The students were also asked to create a brochure that the Friends can use to educate the community about mining.

The trip fulfilled a class assignment that requires students to conduct an internship with an environmental non-governmental organization, Toral says. Over the course of their time with the group, students delivered a presentation, took questions from the members of the organization, and provided expert analysis and advice.

“Their presentation was flawless,” Toral says. “They conducted themselves in a very professional manner. They explained everything by providing accurate data on mining and made use of some of the concepts and theories that they learned in the course to help the Friends understand mining.”

Paul Danicic, the FBWW director, later told Toral that he was very impressed with the Beloiters he encountered. "I feel we learned a few things too,” Danicic wrote--he then went on to invite the Beloit students to apply for internships with the organization.
