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.”

The inaugural issue of the Beloit Undergraduate Research Journal will be released Friday (May 2).

Editors will post an open-access version online at and will hand out hard copies at C-Haus from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. Friday, at the final Hoptimistic Thoughts of the semester. All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend and pick up a copy of the BURJ while supplies last.  (You can read about the journal in the news section of the latest issue of Beloit College Magazine, available here.)

“We hope that by broadly disseminating the journal we can create transparency and dialogue for the kind of work we are doing at Beloit,” says BURJ Editor-in-Chief Nathan Omans’14.

An editorial board of 11 students has been working for the past eight months to put this project together in a way that it can continue for years to come.

“The subjects of our papers are as diverse as the Beloit curriculum,” Omans says. “We received a total of 17 submissions and accepted seven. We have been working closely with the authors through the peer-review process.”

The authors for this issue include:

  • Traci Spacek
  • Cameron LeViere
  • Hannah Richter
  • Josh Smith
  • Katherine Ptaszek
  • Thorin Blitz
  • Emily Vogelhuber
