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.”

Buccaneer VB Squad Earns AVCA Recognition for Academic Excellence

August 13, 2010 at 9:01 am

Lexington, KY -- The 2009 Beloit College Buccaneer Volleyball team has earned distinction from the American Volleyball Coaches Association for the second straight year, receiving the Team Academic Award for the 2009-10 school year.

A record 450 teams were lauded for their academic excellence, including 75 in NCAA Division III.

The Bucs were one of just two teams to receive the honor in the Midwest Conference, along with Monmouth College, and were one of just four Division III teams in the state of Wisconsin to earn the distinction.

The award, which was initiated by the AVCA during the 1992-93 academic year, honors collegiate and high school volleyball teams that displayed excellence in the classroom during the year by maintaining at least a 3.30 cumulative grade-point-average on a 4.00 scale.

The Buccaneers, under fourth-year head coach Dawn Redd, open their 2010 season on Wednesday, September 1, when they take on UW-Stevens Point at the Carroll Quad in Waukesha.
