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.”

Beloit dancers perform in Chicago Sunday; tickets, info

April 3, 2014 at 4:54 pm

Despite the 254 miles separating Beloit and Grinnell College, the student-run dance groups, Beloit College Dance Company and Grinnell College Dance Ensemble/ACTivate, will collaborate on a full-length performance, Sudden Spring, Sunday, April 6 at the Ruth Page Center for the Arts in downtown Chicago.

Using the Distance Dances method of collaborative choreography, developed by co-founders Gina T’ai, adjunct assistant professor of dance at Beloit College, and Susan Honer, independent dance artist based in Dayton, Ohio, students will construct a series of dances. Replacing studio rehearsals with online video posts, the dancers interacted remotely right up until this weekend, when they will meet and merge the generated material into cohesive dances just days before the performance. The process can be followed at http://beloitrdc.wordpress.com/. Each company will also perform a dance piece of their own repertory.

The show will take place Sunday at 2 p.m. General admission is $12, with student and senior tickets available for $6. Tickets can be purchased online, by phone, or on site at the Ruth Page Box Office, located at 1016 N Dearborn St., Chicago, Ill.

Limited parking is available around the Ruth Page Center for the Arts. Visit http://www.ruthpage.org/ for more information, ticket sales, and a list of nearby discount parking.

The college will have a bus for 28-30 students leaving Beloit at 9:30 a.m. for the show, though the bus was nearly full earlier this week. The ticket must be paid in advance, and the bus will leave from the Wall Sunday at 9:30 a.m., and return around 6 p.m. Interested parties can e-mail bcdanceco@beloit.edu to see if there are still spaces available.
