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.”

Art exhibitions for everyone: two students determined to make it happen

February 28, 2014 at 7:33 am

Art can be subjective, and trying to get your work displayed can be an intimidating task, regardless of your skill level. Now, two attendants at the Wright Museum of Art are trying to make it as easy as possible for all Beloit students to get their work on display.

“The point of this project is that anyone should be able to have their work displayed regardless of skill level, experience, or the people they know,” says Jonah Stoller’15, a psychology major.

Having your work accessible is an unparalleled feeling, says Peter Nattinger’15, himself a studio art major. It’s one he wants other Beloiters to experience.

“This year at the Annual Juried Student Art show was the first time I've ever had any of my work displayed for public view, and it felt great,” he says. “I wanted to give other students like me who have never had their work displayed in a real museum the chance to do so.”

It doesn’t matter whether or not a student considers his- or herself an extraordinary artist—the point is the sense of community and exposure, the organizers explain. They’re hoping to feature two students’ work at a time, for two weeks.

“Submissions will be considered on a first come, first serve basis, meaning that no qualitative assessment of the artwork will be made,” Stoller says. “What this means is that ANY Beloit student who gets in contact with Peter or me will be given the opportunity to display their original work in a museum.”

The two feel that this could have a dual purpose: increase student traffic to the Wright Museum, which they consider “an underappreciated gem on campus,” and give a boost to the campus art scene, much in the same way open mikes foster a sense of community for the musicians on campus.

“We are looking for all kinds of artwork, in any medium,” Nattinger says.

Adds Stoller, “Our only requirement is that the pieces are not offensive for the sake of being offensive. Otherwise, anything is fair game, and we encourage any student who is interested to contact us about getting a display slot, regardless of their level of experience.”

Artists will be required to sign a release form when they deliver their work.  

To submit work:

  • You must be a Beloit College student
  • Email Peter Nattinger’15 (nattingerp@beloit.edu) or Jonah Stoller’15 (stollerj@beloit.edu) with the following information:
  • Name, class year, number of pieces (1-4, depending on size), their respective titles, mediums, dates of creation, and your phone number.
