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.”

First look: New Beloit.edu nearly ready for its close-up

August 22, 2014 at 10:35 am


Next week the college will be upgrading a few basic elements on the Beloit College website with the aim of making the site easier and more pleasing to read but also more distinctive and exciting for prospective students and their families.

The college’s web committee saw the site two weeks ago. Now, the entire campus is being offered a look at the site, which is expected to go live on Thursday, Sept. 4.

The ultimate aim is to "align the main page of the site more closely with new admissions materials and messages, while also being distinctive in our use of video-- much of which is student captured and produced," says Jason Hughes, director of communications.  

Here are a few of the revisions you’ll notice:

  • A new menu bar up top: The site will now feature a floating white banner at the top that offers two new options (“Alumni” and “+ More”) in addition to the current offerings.
  • Drop downs streamlined: The top navigation options will also feature fewer drop-down options.
  • Overall design will be lighter, cleaner, due mostly to the removal of backgrounds and textures applied in the last redesign.
  • Navigational links will move from the right hand side of each page to the left.
  • Video and more video: The main page itself will now feature running video when accessed on a laptop or desktop. Beloit will be among the first to move beyond static photography in this space and the hope is that this helps better illustrate the energy that defines Beloit. Scrolling down on Beloit.edu you will also notice a number of videos produced by college staff and students that do the same.

What WILL NOT change:

  • Content: The content and architecture of the site will remain unchanged. The only exception is the main page (www.beloit.edu), which will feature content that draws from the admissions office’s new recruitment materials. New photography has also been added to the rotating windows across the site.
  • The site’s “responsiveness”: The last time the web team undertook a site-wide design refresh was March 2013. At that time, they made the entire site responsive-- that is, able to work on almost every platform (laptop to tablet to mobile phone). This responsiveness is still in place and the site adapts to both phone and tablet formats automatically.

Enough about what you’ll see. Go see it. The site is available at dev.beloit.edu.

If you notice any issues, please try clearing your cache (one way to do this is to refresh the page while holding the “Shift” key). If that doesn't work, you’d do the team a great service if you’d use this simple online form to share what you’re experiencing.
