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.”

Meet Mohammed Abbed'16

Name: Mohammed K. Abbed’16 (above, left).

Hometown: Gridley, Ill.

Major/minor: Biology.

What brought me to Beloit: The people I've met, academics, and football.

My favorite class so far, and why you should take it: Chemistry 127: Nutrition. Professor Roc Ordman is a very caring and kind person. He'll definitely shine the brighter things in life and in this school.

You may have seen me: Playing football, Mr. Beloit 2012 contestant, and around campus talking to people.

The best book I’ve read at Beloit: Dark Tower Series by Stephen King, from my personal library.

Favorite meal? Mom's cooking.

What can’t you live without? My Xbox. It's loyal, fun, and has great taste in movies. Yeah, we have our ups and downs, but it's always there for me.

Who are your top-three fantasy dinner party guests? Louis C.K., Daniel Tosh, and Dave Chappelle.

Who are your heroes? My parents. They've always been there for me no matter what. They've sacrificed their lives for my brothers and myself to live better lives and have better opportunities that they didn't have in Palestine.

Any advice? Feed those who are in need, not those who are needy.
