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.”

Connecting Beloit: An Advising Practicum (featured alumni, schedule)

March 25, 2014 at 7:46 am


Haven’t you ever, as a student/person/employee, looked back at your past self and thought “I wish I could give that person some advice?” We’ve all been there. Don’t let your future self down--we’re pretty sure they’d want you to attend tomorrow’s Connecting Beloit: An Advising Practicum.

Full schedules of departmental and all-campus events are available here; below, some of the confirmed alumni featured guests, who will be attending and leading sessions--and giving a lot of great advice.

NOTE: There is a repeat session of the LAPC resume-writing workshop taking place at 2 p.m., in Science Center Room 349, which is not currently listed in the schedule.

Featured alumni:

  • Matthew Aslesen'08 (Sociology)
  • Emily Coffey'09 (History)
  • Alisha Wright'09 (Religious Studies)
  • Laura Toth'11 (Anthropology and Religious Studies)

And, when it’s all said and done, you’ll have the chance to mingle with your peers and professors alike at the C-Haus happy hour, the brainchild of the senior capstone class Translating the Liberal arts, who organized the all-campus programming for the day with the aim of focusing on connections: both between Beloiters, and between Beloiters and their experiences.

"Hoptimistic Thoughts provides an informal atmosphere for the exploration of ideas outside of the classroom," says C-Haus Manager Steve Olivieri, of the end-of-the-day happy hour. "We will also be announcing the winners of the drawing, to see who won an iPad mini!"

The Coughy Haus will have its usual varied menu of craft beers and specialty sodas available for purchase (cash only) as well as complimentary pretzels, nuts, and snacks. An optional $5 beer tasting will feature five beers new to the Coughy Haus coolers. If you are over 21, bring your ID and $5 to participate in the tasting. 

See you there!
