The Gold Standard
Who We Are and Why You Should Join Us
Student-athletes at Beloit College are just that - Students and Athletes.
As students at one of the nation's top liberal arts colleges, Buccaneers get a first-class education that will challenge and prepare them for a competitive global stage and marketplace.
The coaches and student-athletes within the Department of Athletics offices at Beloit College enrich and augment that experience.
Our student-athletes are mentored by both professors and coaches (and even teammates), challenged to think creatively and actively (on the field of competition and in class), and asked to practice and relentlessly test their skills, knowledge and perceived limits in a supportive but goal-fulfilling environment that doesn't end (or begin) on the court, field or pool-side.
As wearers of the Blue & Gold, Buccaneers hold themselves to the Gold standard. As individuals and athletes, citizens and classmates, they believe in preparation, good will, and high standards. If this appeals to you, we hope you schedule a visit to the College and make plans to meet personally with our coaches and some of the students that may become your teammates.
