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.”

Share some culture: volunteer for the Multicultural Fair

March 24, 2013 at 10:57 pm

On Saturday, April 13, the Help Yourself Programs will host the 19th Annual Multicultural Fun Fair on the Beloit College Campus. The purpose of this yearly event is to encourage increased inter- and intra-personal understanding as well as cultural awareness. Students will experience exhibits, entertainment, and food from a diverse array of cultures.

Although admission to this event is only open to Help Yourself participants and their families, as a part of the event, we would like to invite Beloit College students, staff, and faculty to participate by creating a table or giving a performance representing their native country or any country of their choice/interest. Do you have a special talent such as singing, dancing or playing an instrument that will enhance the understanding of a culture? Display your talent to our Help Yourself Families! Past performances have included the playing of bagpipes, Mexican Folk dance and African dance.  

Each exhibitor will be provided with a six-foot table for displays. Past exhibits have included cultural clothing, food, flags, toys, cultural games, hands-on displays, and explanations of cultural difficulties, concerns, and/or issues. We ask that each exhibit be as interactive as possible. If you are interested in participating, contact Regina Hendrix  at hendrixr@beloit.edu by Wednesday (March 27).
