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.”

Bunge Theatre to see renovation thanks to alumna support

June 9, 2014 at 8:10 am

The Bunge Theatre in the Neese Theatre building will soon see an extensive renovation thanks to the generosity of Eleanor (Nor) Hall’69 and her husband Roger Hale.

Among the planned renovations, students and classes can enjoy additional lighting, sound, projection, and seating. It is hoped that this space will also provide a much-needed experimentation and learning place for theatre and non-theatre users—a stage for which students can practice the liberal arts through innovation, design, testing, and performing.

Over the years, Nor and Roger have helped shape Beloit College with their generous gifts for dance, theater, the Logan Museum, spiritual life, the Poetry Garden, and a scholarship for an international student from the United World College in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Nor’s interests span many areas, reinforced by her experiences at Beloit during the innovative Beloit Plan years. A double major in anthropology and religious studies, she spent off campus time in Taiwan and traveling around the U.S. by Greyhound bus visiting experimental churches.

Nor and Roger understand first-hand how improvements to the space support creativity and reinforcement of the liberal arts, partly because they have enjoyed watching their scholarship student in performances at the college and observing how studying, performing, and volunteering in the theater department enriches his entire experience at Beloit. Nor’s appreciation for the value this holds for students exemplifies how Beloiters embrace interdisciplinary perspectives.

The possibilities and opportunity for hands-on, creative, and technical experience this generous gift enables are endless.
