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.”

Director of International Education Betsy Brewer and professors Pablo Toral and Amy Sarno visited universities in the United Kingdom over the spring break last week, to look at study abroad options for Beloiters.

Brewer writes:

"Our trip took us north to Sunderland, a former industrial center that was home to ship-building and glass manufacturing, where our students can take advantage of applied courses in media studies, journalism, and the arts, among others. The city of Sunderland has installed walking and cycling paths along the waterfront where ship-building and manufacturing used to take place. Some of the university facilities are state of the art, and the older buildings have been refurbished.

We then traveled to York to visit the University of York, which describes itself as a lovely campus on the edge of a lovely city, 20 minutes by rail from a big city (Leeds). York is college-based, with each college affiliated with one or more academic departments.  A new campus, a 10-minute walk from the old one, is home to the law and business schools, media studies, and  computer science. Of particular interest to Beloit students will be offerings in biology, math, economics, history, art history, archaeology (York has Viking and medieval sites), and English."

The Beloiters also visited Goldsmiths College at the University of London and the University of Essex, a research intensive university located outside Colchester, England's oldest recorded town. Their final stop was at the University of Sussex, “a university intent on reclaiming its interdisciplinary and international origins,” according to Brewer.
