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.”

College implements new radon management plan

August 8, 2014 at 11:35 am

This fall semester marks the introduction of a plan focusing on indoor air quality designed to keep all members of the college community informed and safe.

The discovery of elevated radon gas levels in Middle College on March 14, 2014, led to the relocation of staff and students and prompted an examination of air quality policy. A committee of staff, faculty, and students established a schedule for testing by environmental professionals and consulted staff at the University of Kentucky, a leader in improving public awareness of radon while using cost-effective measures to diminish levels of radon when present.

With their help, Beloit College facilities staff made necessary modifications to the basement of Middle College and re-opened the space after a second round of tests showed it to be safe. All tested areas have been within the limits considered acceptable by OSHA and the EPA for a 40-hour workweek.

The college is in the process of training a facilities staff member as a certified radon professional to conduct tests on campus.  A testing canister in any location does not mean that the occupants are at risk, so don’t be alarmed!  We also ask that you not disturb the canisters if you find them.
