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.”

Meet: Lauren Herbert’17, silent film admirer and an authority on the BIFF music scene

Meet Lauren Herbert 

Name: Lauren Herbert’17
Santa Rosa, Calif.

What brought me to Beloit: I loved the way that Beloit made a special effort to make a personal connection with its applicants, and I knew I wanted to go to a school that cared about its students.

My favorite class so far, and why you should take it: I love my Intro to Philosophy class with Heath Massey. It is teaching me how to be a critical thinker and reader and how to be comfortable thinking deep thoughts.

You may have seen me: At the Liberal Arts in Practice Center

How I got involved with the Beloit International Film Festival: I first learned of the Beloit International Film Festival from the awesome weekly updates that the LAPC puts out each week.

What the experience has taught me: This experience has taught me how to think on my feet and more importantly how to communicate and stay organized in the face of some very stressful situations.

The BIFF movie/event you shouldn't miss: The Silent Showcase. If you are an admirer of film like I am, you cannot miss these classic Charlie Chaplin silent films that are accompanied by the Janesville Orchestra performing live. It is going to be an amazing event!

What are you working on? I am the assistant director of BIFF + Music, so right now I am communicating with the bands that will play at the festival to make sure we have everything they need for their performance.

Who are your top three dinner party guests? In no particular order:

1. F. Scott Fitzgerald

2. William Shakespeare

3. Lisel Mueller

What can’t you live without? I cannot live without my books and movies.

What’s your karaoke standard? That's easy. “Firework” by Katy Perry.
