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.”

Could your job search lead you to China?

January 13, 2013 at 7:05 pm

For those graduating in the spring, starting a job search is probably on their list of priorities. If teaching English abroad sounds like an occupation you’d like to pursue, the Office of International Education can help. Since 2006, Beloit graduates have been heading off to Henan University—Beloit’s partner college in Kaifeng, China—to teach English. Currently, the university invites applications from graduating Beloit students interested in working at the school as English instructors.

Kaifeng 1 

Recent graduate and religious studies major Jennifer Olson'12, pictured above at far left, is currently in Kaifeng. The above picture was taken when President Bierman and other Beloiters visited China in September.

"At first, I was hesitant to take it because I had never studied Chinese before and was worried about how I'd adjust," Olson says. "Now I'm having a wonderful experience here and am really glad that I decided to come."

Kaifeng itself is full of history and interesting food, Olson explains, and teaching has proved rewarding.

"The whole experience has been a pleasant surprise and I would definitely recommend it," she says. "As long as you are flexible and open to new experiences, it's a wonderful opportunity to experience teaching and living in a different country. I've really enjoyed the creative work of teaching, and getting to know students." 

Details: These teachers hold full responsibility for teaching English to university students, who may be English majors or students taking English to fulfill general education requirements. Teaching schedules typically involve 14-plus hours of teaching per week, plus preparation, with class sizes averaging approximately 40 students. While teachers are expected to prepare their students to meet particular learning outcomes, they have considerable flexibility in how they approach this task. This is, therefore, a wonderful and challenging opportunity for recent graduates to put their liberal arts education into practice.


  • Native speakers of English with good academic records 
  • Flexibility, adaptability, and the ability to cope productively with ambiguity
  • Note: Applicants need not be English majors, but must be adept readers, speakers, and writers of English. Applicants do not need to have studied Chinese, although some knowledge of Chinese can be an asset on site.

Olson didn't know Chinese, and admits that while adapting was stressful, her friendly students and acquaintances made the transition easier.

"While not being able to speak or read Chinese was a little stressful at first, I've adjusted really well to life here," Olson says. "People here are so friendly and students are always eager to help out. I am now learning Chinese with a tutor, and have made plenty of friends."
