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.”

Dramatic performance of “For Colored Girls…” caps Black History Month

February 27, 2014 at 7:29 am

As a closing event celebrating Black History Month, seven Beloit College actresses will perform the dramatic monologues of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When Rainbow is Enuf, the experimental choreopoem by writer Ntozake Shange. Free performances will take place tonight (Thursday) and tomorrow (Friday) at 7:30 p.m. in Wilson Theatre of Mayer Hall.

“I knew that I wanted to do something big at the end of the month in celebration of this month,” says Taja Hereford’15, vice president of Black Students United, which organized the event. “I thought it was important for the campus to see our club do something amazing on campus. I think that this production encompasses what we strive to teach people about the lives of people of color--and, specifically for this production--women of color.”

According to Hereford, who is hoping to make the production an annual event along the lines of The Vagina Monologues, this production is a storyline of seven women of color, portrayed as the colors of the rainbow, who face different life struggles. (It’s been produced as a stage production and film since its publication in 1975). Some of the women face domestic violence, others face abortion, love, and pain. The roles will be played by Nzingha Hall, Devin McCray, Stephanie Mayo, Tamanisha John, Sofia Jurado, Sudan Garner, and Fabi Hernandez.


When: Thursday, Feb. 27 and Friday, Feb. 28
7:30 p.m. - 9:30p.m.
