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.”

Summer Symposium: a chance for staff and faculty to learn about Beloit, each other

May 19, 2014 at 7:13 am

Now that the dust has cleared from preparing for Commencement and attending all manner of end-of-the-year festivities, faculty and staff are invited to take some time to celebrate their accomplishments and learn about college initiatives, the campus, and some key work being done by some of the departments here at Beloit.

On Thursday, all faculty and staff are invited to take part in a number of events and sessions for the fourth annual Summer Symposium. The day will kick off with breakfast in Commons at 7:45 a.m. with recognition for staff milestones and the presentation of the Bill Behling award, followed by an opening session, “This is Beloit,” by Director of Communications and Marketing Jason Hughes at 9:45 a.m., also in Commons. Hughes will highlight some of the positioning work undertaken by the Office of Communications and Marketing, and the resulting projects: a new, viewbook, and more.

Following the opening session, Beloiters can choose from a series of concurrent sessions at 10:45 a.m. and 11:45 a.m., with topics ranging from the admissions process to testing your sustainability I.Q. or even taking a walking tour of campus.

Mark your calendar--we’ll see you there! A full listing of events can be found below.
