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 in the rankings: coldest colleges

January 9, 2014 at 7:57 am


Beloit College has found itself on another list of college rankings, though not one you might expect--though, given the weather the past couple of days, you wouldn’t be surprised.

According to “The 21 Coldest Colleges In The Country,” posted last week on Huffington Post:

The ranking is based on “student reviews of weather on campus, average high and low temperatures during summer and winter, and average summer and winter precipitation amounts,” the website explained. “If a school is not listed, it's due to a lack of student reviews and weather data available to ensure accuracy in evaluating the colleges,” according to the website's parent company, Niche.
