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.”

Public panel discussion on “good government”

March 14, 2013 at 10:46 pm

Monday at 6:30 p.m., Beloit College Democrats and the political science department will co-host (in part) a public forum and panel discussion in the Science Center Atrium. “Whatever Happened to Good Government in Wisconsin? And How Can We Fix it?” will include insights from the following panelists:

  • State Senator Tim Cullen (D-Janesville)
  • Former State Senator Tim Weeden (R-Beloit)
  • Bill Barth, editor of the Beloit Daily News
  • Political Science Professor Georgia Duerst-Lahti of Beloit College
  • Common Cause Wisconsin Executive Director Jay Heck

Professor Beatrice McKenzie will moderate the discussion.

The topics under discussion will include:

  • Disclosure of interest-group “phony issue ads” and other “outside” spending—is this necessary or would it stifle “free speech”?
  • How is the U.S. Supreme Court decision on Citizens United vs F.E.C affecting Wisconsin?
  • Will the new Voter Photo ID suppress voter fraud or voters?
  • Public Financing of our state elections needed?
  • Should we elect or appoint Wisconsin's Supreme Court Justices?
