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.”

Meet Corrie 1 

What brought me to Beloit: I had been looking for a career in which I could utilize my degree in communications management, and I happened to come across this open position. The timing was perfect, the opportunity was exactly what I had been looking for, so I went for it and here I am. I'm grateful to be here, and I'm surrounded by wonderful people all day. I look forward to meeting more Beloiters!

You may have seen me: Wandering aimlessly around campus asking how to get to certain buildings.

What are you working on? At home, I'm perfecting my bacon bourbon cheesecake tartlets and my pineapple upside down cheesecake.

What’s on your desert island jukebox? Royal Bliss, Blue October, best of the’80s.

Any advice? Never let anyone pierce your veil of confidence.

What do you do in your free time? I enjoy baking and cooking, especially for my family and friends. Reading a good book to wind down. When the weather is nice we enjoy bike rides, taking our black lab, Norah, for a walk, or lounging in our pool at home.

Who are your heroes? My parents.

What’s your favorite hidden gem here in the area? Not too familiar with places in Beloit, but one in Rockford is Toad Hall.
