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.”

Beloiter, define thyself

March 11, 2013 at 5:20 pm


The Office of Communications and Marketing is asking Beloiters to explain themselves.

In a card being distributed today and tomorrow via campus mail to all students, faculty, and staff, Beloiters are being asked to “Define Beloit.” Or, more specifically, Beloiters.

The large cards will ask members of the campus community to help define Beloiters, as both a noun and a verb. All entries returned to the office by the end of this month will be entered in a drawing for one of a dozen “B” drinking glasses or a Kindle Paperwhite e-reader (the top prize).


Why so interested in this sort of feedback? The push is a part of a larger positioning and branding study underway within the office. Communications and Marketing spent much of the fall pulling and studying existing and new research that helps define the college, its people, and its competitors. In this new phase, communications staff are conducting individual interviews and focus groups with students, faculty, staff, alumni and even the parents of current students.

This particular effort is expected to be instructive, but also fun.

“We’re asking our campus community, as well as everyone who receives the spring issue of Beloit College Magazine (which included an insert with the same request), to participate in this,” says Jason Hughes, director of communications at the college. “Not only will these responses help us speak truthfully about who we are, but it gives Beloiters an opportunity to be Beloitish when offering that feedback.”
