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.”

Theatre group tackles tough issues of race, gender, and social identities

December 4, 2013 at 7:30 am

A handful of campus groups have joined forces to bring theatre troupe About Face to campus Thursday (Dec. 5) night for a performance of It’s For Real, taking place at 7 p.m. in Kresge Theatre (located in the Neese Theatre Complex).

Described as “hilarious and poignant,” It’s For Real connects issues of race, class, gender, age, and sexuality. Based on the true experiences of the performers in the show, the audience is encouraged to ask the actors about their stories, and share experiences. There’s Nic, a genderqueer voguer dealing with homelessness and their relationship to money; Rashida, whose New Year's day takes an unexpected turn; Nemo, a straight ally whose mom tries to nag her into coming out; and Joel, who gets flack for being black and Latino.

“Some of the issues that About Face deals with can be uncomfortable to bring up or talk about,” says John Kaufmann, assistant professor of theatre studies. “I know we value these conversations here at Beloit, but that doesn't make them easy. Performance, humor, and storytelling can be a great way to start a dialogue, and I've seen this group really get people talking. Hopefully they'll give us a reference point that allows us to keep the conversation going into the future.”

All students, faculty, staff, and community members are welcome at this free event; cast members will be available to mix and mingle and keep the conversation going informally at the C-Haus after the show, around 9 p.m.
