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.”

Round Table seeks submissions, help in memorializing two Beloiters

January 23, 2014 at 7:53 am

From Round Table Features Editor Kelsey Rettke’15:

The Round Table would like to publish a compilation-type memorial feature for Justine Ringberg'13 and Raquel Nuñez'13, both of whom passed away last week in a tragic car crash in northern Wisconsin. The Round Table is reaching out to those who may have known these two women well, and/or may know others who knew them well.

The feature will compile a number of brief anecdotes about them, stories, moments that show their character, and memories you are willing to share.

Please accept the Round Table's sincere condolences to you all, some of whom may be feeling the loss more so than others. We offer up all of our thoughts to you all, and urge that if you do not feel like you are ready or willing to share any stories for the memorial feature, please know that that is understandable.

We know that the college would like to celebrate Justine and Raquel's life--and our hope is that the Round Table feature can be representational and emulative of the love the entire campus community had for them.

If any of you have photos of Justine and Raquel--or know of people who have them--the Round Table welcomes any and all you would be willing to share.

We would like to publish the feature in this upcoming Monday's issue (Jan. 27) so anyone interested should send all anecdotes by Saturday (Jan. 25) at the latest.

You may send your brief anecdotes, memories, and photos to either the features editor's email ( or to the Round Table email (
