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.”

“Mixed Mamas:” Two-person show explores race, class, gender, sexuality

March 24, 2014 at 7:45 am

Sage Morgan-Hubbard and alumna Stacy Rene Erenberg’05 present a two-woman show that explores how race, class, gender, and sexuality have and continues to intersect and inform their lives as black and Jewish multi-racial mamas, tonight at 7 p.m. in the Java Joint.

According to the performers:

“Mixed Mamas Remix Vol. 2 is a multimedia performance art and storytelling experience that explores the intersections between race, class, gender, and sexuality. Mixed Mamas is an episodic performance piece made up of short, humorous, and touching autobiographical narratives of two black, Jewish, thick-bodied, young, political women as they grow and develop into themselves.

This is a compilation of stories, songs, and poems themed around childhood, middle school, high school, college and adulthood. Within each of these age groups are topical pieces exploring issues such as the use of the "n" word, the "b" word, the "fat" word, discovering a healthy relationship with our hair, our booties, our bodies, and ourselves. From rants on racism to the complexities of internalized oppression and privilege to the stories of how our parents met, this piece explores the insides and out, of our multi-racial experience. It highlights the moments that we are proud, questioning, and ashamed of our identities and the stages of development we have gone through.”
