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.”

Science Center lab to be renamed in honor of Hank Woodard

February 16, 2014 at 6:48 pm

To honor one of our distinguished faculty—one that has left an indelible mark on generations of Beloiters—is a special event, and it’s even more exciting when we have the opportunity to fulfill alumni wishes to thank one of their favorites; one of their “academic heroes,” as he was presented to the development and alumni relations team.

On Friday, Feb. 28, the mineralogy-petrology laboratory in the Center for the Sciences will be renamed in honor of Beloit College Emeritus Professor of Geology Hank “The Chief” Woodard. This initiative was driven by a group of alumni—headed up by Richard A. "Skip" Davis'59—with support from development and alumni relations.

It’s not the first time that alumni have worked together to fundraise for something they are passionate about. In fact, not surprisingly given Hank’s impressive career, it isn’t the first time alumni have rallied for “The Chief” either. In 2002, a committee of geology alumni came together to fund the Hank and Lyn Woodard Endowed Scholarship Fund.

The Office of Development and Alumni Relations hopes that you’ll join them as they celebrate Hank and his many accomplishments. The event and reception will take place following the H.H. Woodard Lecture with Dr. Jennifer Francis, research professor at the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences at Rutgers University, presenting, “Arctic connections to extreme weather in mid-latitudes: Evidence and gaps.”

The details:

When: Friday, Feb. 28.
Time and location:
The H.H. Woodard Lecture will take place at 4 p.m. in Richardson Auditorium; the naming of the Woodard Laboratory and reception will take place at 6 p.m. on the fourth floor of the Science Center, room 446.
