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.”

No Gender Left Behind: Performer addresses issues of diversity

April 15, 2014 at 7:20 am

Rebecca Kling, apt.

Transgender performance artist Rebecca Kling grew up wearing boy’s clothing, with a short buzz cut. She also “wore swimming trunks to the pool or the beach, had a Bar Mitzvah, played on the boys' teams after school, changed in the boys' locker room, wore a suit and tie to important family occasions, and lived in the boys' section of the dorm at college. Looking through old photo albums, it's clear - boy, boy, boy.”

This afternoon (Tuesday) at 4 p.m. in the Java Joint, the artist and educator will will be giving a workshop and performance on her experiences as a transgender person. Want a preview? You can see video of her performance here.
