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 Calago Hipps’15, appearing in performance next week

January 16, 2013 at 10:17 pm

Calago Hipps

Name: Calago Hipps’15.

Major/minor/: Double major in media studies and performance.

Hometown: Avon Park, Fla.  

You may have seen me: As Alan Reliegh in God Of Carnage.

Can you tell us a little bit about the spoken word event taking place next Wednesday, Jan. 23? The performance is a hybrid actually. The show itself will be a performance that I adapted from MLK's Letters from a Birmingham Jail. These letters were written during Dr. King’s incarceration and cover a range of topics. The piece will be broken up and the spoken word pieces will set up each different topic that Dr. King covers in the letters. (Lessons and Letters from a Birmingham Jail, a poetry and spoken-word event, will take place Wednesday, Jan. 23 at 8 p.m. in Moore Lounge of Pearsons Hall.)

Favorite meal? Anything Italian is my favorite meal.

Any advice? Knowledge is power and unlike other means of power we come across in life, knowledge is something you can seek on your own.

Beatles or Stones? Neither. I'm a big fan of The Who however.
