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.”

With new students arriving today, Beloit College asked alumni on Facebook to share their best memories of New Student Days.

While The Wall was the overwhelming favorite memory, we got a plethora of enthusiastic responses. Here’s a sampling:

• Amanda Sanders Ryan: Meeting my adviser for the first time, (Biology Professor) Ken Yasukawa!

• Thizzly Adams: Meeting my first girlfriend of college, hanging out in Peet 4th lounge.

• Rachel Yew: Watching the American students pull up in U-Haul trucks and the international students with two pieces of luggage carrying their worldly possessions.

• Rattana Phon: Meeting my roommate as we were trying to look for a restroom for my grandma.

• Ann L. Savagian: Making new friends and discovering that my room had a “balcony” (4th floor Emerson)!
