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.”

Magazine hits campus this week, online this morning

March 13, 2013 at 10:31 pm

Beloit College Magazine’s spring 2013 issue will be distributed on campus in the coming days—and with its vibrant yellow cover art, it will be hard to miss.

Equally fresh is the content: a cover story on Labs Across the Curriculum looks at how lab-based teaching is spurring innovation at Beloit around teaching and learning in the arts, the humanities, and all subject areas.  Among other things, the project, initially funded through a major grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, rethinks the traditional classroom and makes the college’s museum collections and archives more accessible and integral to student learning.

Also in this issue:

  • The entertaining back story of Ding Darling, whose antics at Beloit circa the 1890s got him kicked out for a year. He returned to graduate, then went on to become a pioneering conservationist, political pundit, Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, and is now the subject of a new documentary film.
  • What does Beloit look like on a typical autumn weekday? A photo spread by Associate Director of Admissions Trevor Johnson’08 puts forth an answer.
  • A story about the role of Chicago-based alumni in helping current students connect the dots between their education and their future professions.
  • And much more, including a look inside quantitative literacy: what it is, how it’s being taught, and why it’s increasingly important; an exploration of the power of narrative in compassion for others; and the role of interdisciplinary thinking for one young scientist in understanding volcanoes and earthquakes.

Beloit College Magazine publishes three times a year and is mailed and distributed on campus to 22,000-plus alumni, campus and community readers, and prospective students and their families.

The spring 2013 issue arrives on campus on Friday and mails to off-campus residences during the last two weeks of March. You may also read it online (after 7 a.m. Thursday) at
