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.”

OIE signs on to pledge, raises study abroad goal to 60 percent

May 7, 2014 at 7:53 am

The Office of International Education has signed on to a national pledge aimed at doubling the number of students that study abroad nationally each year.

“The Institute for International Education is calling its new national push ‘Generation Study Abroad.’ The initiative seeks to double the number of students studying abroad over the next five years,” says Director of International Education Betsy Brewer. “Institutions that have joined the initiative will be announced at the NAFSA meeting in May in San Diego, and pledges will be published on IIE's website.”

Beloit's baseline study abroad number (for 2011-12) was 39 percent.
