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 International Film Festival underway

Movie buffs, get your popcorn--the Beloit International Film Festival begins today.

Beloit College will also be the site for several BIFF events. The Hendricks Center for the Arts will be a venue for film screenings, and BIFF Honorary Chair Mark Wood, the foremost director and producer of films for the deaf, will be speaking on campus on Wednesday, (Feb. 19) at 8 p.m. in the Fireplace Lounge of Morse-Ingersoll Hall, following a showing of his new film, In the Can, at Domenico’s.

Beloit students, faculty, and staff will also perform music as part of BIFF+Music, the music festival extension of BIFF that will bring 24 bands to downtown Beloit venues next weekend, and 10 Beloit College students have worked on the festival as interns--many of whom have been profiled in the Terrarium over the last week. This year’s group of students is “extraordinary,” according to intern coordinator and BIFF creative director Kristin Peterson. “With our expansion to 10 days we have needed assistance, and interns from the college are involved in every aspect of planning and execution," she said.
