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.”

McBride offers Lunchbox Lecture, live and online

April 22, 2014 at 7:51 am

If you missed Tom McBride hold forth on Shakespeare’s anthropology of sex at last week’s Keefer lecture, you can still catch the Keefer Professor of the Humanities before he retires this spring. On Wednesday (April 23) he’ll deliver a Lunchbox Lecture, “The Lost Art of Classroom Wisdom,” at 12:30 p.m. in Moore Lounge of Pearsons Hall.

McBride will explore the question of what professors should teach, an issue he argues has grown more complicated in recent years due to the information revolution and politics among others. Attendees are invited to bring a lunch and watch the lecture on campus, and those who are not able to make it can watch the lecture live online.
