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.”

April 23, 2014 at 7:30 am

After a ruthless night of judging for the recycling competition, the tie for the top spot has been broken! We’re pleased to announce the best recycling residence on campus is…(drumroll)

SAGA house! They were the only residence to maintain the 100 percent score throughout the two-week competition.

  • Close behind in second place was Alpha Sigma Tau House, with 96 percent.
  • Maurer Hall, third floor,  managed 95 percent for third place.
  • A most-improved shout out goes to Geology House for an impressive improvement from last week's dismal 55 percent to a 90 percent score at the end of this week, rounding out to a final score of 76 percent.

The top three residences will be awarded cash towards a sustainable prize of their choosing ($200, $100, and $50, respectively):  locally sourced dinner, new lightbulbs, or other creative options.

Keep on recycling! Learn what is recyclable here in Beloit because it could be different from your hometown or state.
