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: BIFF Intern and economics major Kristy McClammer’16

February 19, 2014 at 5:56 pm

Kristy McNammer 

Name: Kristy McClammer
Rockton, Ill.
Business economics.

What brought me to Beloit: I was a Porter Scholar at Beloit my senior year of high school. The atmosphere at Beloit was very welcoming, and I loved that the professors were able to know their students well.

My favorite class so far, and why you should take it: Society and Culture! This class opened my eyes to so many things that I had never noticed going on in the world around me. It made me reevaluate the way I think about myself, other people, and different situations.

You may have seen me: At the Kappa Delta house, eating a Beloit bagel at Pearsons, or petting every random dog walking down the sidewalk.

How I got involved with the Beloit International Film Festival: I joined the BIFF team my first semester at Beloit after hearing about it from a friend. Being able to grow through my internship and take on new responsibilities have been really exciting for me and have given me a lot of self-confidence.

What the experience has taught me: That hard work pays off. We work hard all yearlong preparing for the festival, and when it finally happens, it is so great to meet all of the filmmakers and see them proud of their work.

The BIFF movie/event you shouldn't miss: Date America! This documentary is a hilarious take on online dating, and the filmmaker is at BIFF! I have recommended it to everyone.

What’s on your desert island jukebox? “How Will I Know” by Whitney Houston.

Favorite meal? Crunchwrap supreme with no tomatoes, nachos, and a baja freeze from T-Bell.

What can’t you live without? T-Bell.

Any advice? Strive to be the person your dog thinks you are.

What do you do in your free time? What do you wish you did in your free time? In my very rare free time, I sleep. I wish that I went to the gym in my free time.

What’s your favorite hidden gem here in the area? Mr. B's without a doubt. If you haven't been there, check it out ASAP. It is the most unique restaurant I have ever been to.

What are you most looking forward to? Studying abroad in Palma de Mallorca next spring. It is going to be an incredibly life-changing experience.
