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.”

Who’s in the lead for Beloit’s recycling competition?

April 17, 2014 at 7:50 am

We are halfway through the first-ever recycling competition on the residential side of campus. Student judges have walked through 64 dorm floors and houses, looking for trash in recycling bins, and recyclables in trash bins. Check out the chart below to see who’s leaving the competition in the dust in round one.

“So far we have some great leaders! We also have some laggards,” says Beloit College Sustainability Coordinator Lindsay Chapman.

There's still one more judging session to determine the winning floor or house so pay attention to those recycling signs, and your floor or house could win $200 towards a sustainable prize of your choosing. (According to Chapman, this could be anything from a locally sourced dinner from Bushel & Peck’s to purchasing CFLs for lighting fixtures, purchasing a lo-flo toilet, or making a charitable donation to a non-profit.)
