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.”

Meet: Visiting Assistant Professor of Biology Gil Jose

December 17, 2012 at 10:47 pm

Gil Jose

Name: Gil Jose

Occupation: Visiting assistant professor of biology

Hometown/current residence: Baltimore, Maryland by way of the Philippines. Currently reside in Madison.

You may have seen me: In the Atrium of the Science Center teaching my students self-defense techniques during their unit on muscles and the skeletal system. 

What's one of your favorite classes to teach, and why? This year, I am teaching Human Biology and Emerging Diseases. I enjoy teaching both of these courses; in Human Biology, I have the opportunity to show my students how important biological concepts relate to their everyday existence.  As a microbiologist by training, I have a passion for emerging diseases, particularly viruses. In Emerging Diseases, I get to teach my students about the biology of some really interesting pathogens, and then tie in those biological concepts with some of the social/political factors that can lead to the spread of disease through a population.

 What are a few of your favorite things? Formula One Racing,, martial arts, spoken word/poetry, Philippine culture and history. 

What three items go in your desert island backpack? Axe, flint, waterproof blueprints for a log canoe. 

Any advice? Work smarter not harder. 

What do you do in your free time? I love going to the movies and live theater. When I can, I enjoy reading books (for fun) in coffee shops as well more outdoor-type activities like hiking and fishing. On more extended breaks, I enjoy road trips and one of my goals is to drive through all of the lower 48 states.

Beatles or Stones? Neither. To name a few, I enjoy Nat King Cole, Sam Cooke, Al Green, Nas, Jay-Z, Wale, Dru Hill, Boyz II Men, and Christopher Wallace.

What are you most looking forward to? Working on my lectures for the spring, playing Assassin's Creed 3 over the break, and planning a road trip from Alaska to Maryland for summer 2013.
