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.”

Museum Monday: End-of-semester reception features research on Indus Valley

December 9, 2013 at 7:52 am

Everyone at Beloit is very busy at the end of the semester, and the Logan Museum of Anthropology is no exception. A flurry of activity surrounding recent and upcoming unveilings of new, student-curated exhibits at the Logan is keeping students and staff hopping. Here’s a glimpse of what’s going on now, and what you can see at the museum’s fall reception on Wednesday.

Just before Thanksgiving, Professor Rama Viswanathan’s FYI presented a poster session in the museum summarizing the class’s research on ancient Indus Valley civilization. Several students worked on the ten Indus Valley seal impressions curated at the Logan. The Indus civilization included some of the world’s earliest cities, and its writing system is one of the last remaining undeciphered scripts. Students researched this complex society and did innovate work such as 3-D scanning of the seal impressions. The students’ posters and the seal impressions are on exhibit in the Foyer of Memorial Hall through February.

Objects of Inspiration IV is an ongoing series of exhibits based on the work of Professor Christi Clancy’s creative writing class. For the fourth straight semester, students selected an object from the nearly 3,700 objects in the Logan’s digital collections, came to the museum lab to “meet” their objects, and composed poetry based on their thoughts, feelings, and experience with the objects. Museum staff then installed the objects and poems they inspired together in the Shaw Gallery on the Museum’s second floor. Objects of Inspiration IV will open on Wednesday (Dec. 11).

Also opening Wednesday is the Museum Studies Exhibit Design and Development class project, Creation Stories: Craft, Culture, and Environment in Northeastern Native America. This exhibit features Native American objects from the Northeastern United States and Canada and looks at how intersections of nature and culture affect Native American art and craft. Working in small curatorial teams, students in the class selected objects, conducted research, drafted label text, designed exhibit cases, and installed the final product.

A fall reception will take place this Wednesday from 4 5:45 p.m. at the Logan Museum. "It’s the last day of classes, so come and unwind with us, or stop by for a few minutes between Academic Senate and the Dean’s conviviality," says Dan Bartlett.
