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.”

Beloit College will be celebrating the 200th anniversary of the beloved British classic novel, Pride and Prejudice, with a series of events this Friday and Saturday (Sept. 27-28). All are free and open to the public.

  • First, two marathon screenings of the 1995 BBC TV series of Pride and Prejudice will take place, beginning on Friday at 7 p.m. with the first four episodes, followed by the final two episodes on Saturday at 1 p.m. Tea will be served during the intermissions on both days.
  • At 3:30 p.m. after Saturday’s screening, topics including the film, the novel, Regency-era culture, and the enduring popularity of Jane Austen will be discussed during a faculty Q & A roundtable.

According to Associate Professor of English Tamara Ketabgian, in addition to enjoying Regency-era music, dance, food, and visual culture, you will have the opportunity to learn more about Jane Austen and her period from an interdisciplinary faculty panel, including Professors Daniel Barolsky (Music), Nataša Bašić (Modern Languages and Literatures), Jennifer Esperanza (Anthropology), Tamara Ketabgian (English), and Tes Slominski (Music).

Feel like dressing up in period costume? Highly recommended, but not at all required.

Both screenings and the roundtable will be held in Wilson Theatre, Mayer Hall.

Wrapping up the Pride and Prejudice celebration will be an English country dance Saturday from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. in the Hendricks Center for the Arts co-sponsored by the Beloit Contra Dance Club.
