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.”

Garden party: see dancers’ Merce Cunningham-inspired work (pics)

May 6, 2014 at 7:52 am

The students of Gina T’ai’s Modern Dance 3 will present “Chance Dance and Happenstance”  at 4 p.m. today in the garden next to the Science Center. (Rain location will be the atrium.) This 12-minute dance piece is the culmination of the semester's work by the students.

Inspired by Merce Cunningham and John Cage's method of Chance Operations, the students have been studying Cunningham Technique and created this piece, which is a mosaic of all the dances learned and created throughout the semester. Below, you can see them working through the process in rehearsal.

Performers include: McKay Bram, Sudan Garner, Clare Harper, Violet Lane-Ruckman, Sophie Maloney, Skylar Miller, Amelia Tarpey, Toby Walters, and Marilu Wiesner.
