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.”

Want a fully funded sustainability position in Beloit this summer? (plus credit?)

April 29, 2014 at 7:28 am

The Office of Communications and Marketing is seeking up to three students to tackle a Sustainability Leaders Team this summer. While the positions are funded with a stipend and you will earn academic credit for your work, there’s another benefit: leaving a legacy—sans paper trail.

Let us explain. As a campus, we seem to be growing increasingly addicted—to paper. In researching the various ways that departments, groups, clubs, and offices get the word out about their events, we here at C&M have reached the conclusion that there’s a huge reliance on paper posters. A lot of posters means a lot of wasted paper, incurring a lot of expense.

We want three students, interested in sustainability, to tackle the issue this summer, employing research, implementation, and plans for educating campus about any potential reforms and policy recommendations regarding the use of paper/posters in marketing campus events. You’ll be working primarily with Lynn Vollbrecht (associate editor of the college magazine and Terrarium editor) and Bonnie Zahn (college designer) on this project, along with other staff members in communications and marketing and across campus.

Qualifications:

  1. Strong research and data-gathering skills
  2. Interest in sustainability
  3. Interest in marketing
  4. Attention to detail
  5. Ability to work well solo and as part of a team
  6. Able to be on campus for eight weeks this summer, from the first week of June (approximately) to the fourth week of July (stipend has been calculated to cover summer campus housing/course enrollment)

Students’ remuneration:

  • Students will receive a stipend of $4,500
  • Will earn one unit of Environmental Studies 390: Special Projects
  • Costs associated with travel for site visits to other institutions will be covered

To apply:

  • Email your resume (with a brief description of why you’d like this position) to Lynn Vollbrecht at vollbrechtl@beloit.edu
  • Will accept applications from individuals or groups
  • DEADLINE: ASAP, by Thursday, May 1
