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.”

St. Norbert bows to Buc men's basketball team

December 9, 2010 at 7:36 pm

 

BremnerThe Beloit College men's basketball team scored what could be a signature win for the program on Wednesday night in Flood Arena, topping sixth-ranked St. Norbert College 62-50.

The win gave SNC its first loss of the season and marked the first Beloit win over St. Norbert since Jan. 6, 2007.

The opening half was tight throughout, with six ties and neither team building more than a three-point lead.  But a three-pointer by Chris Bremner with 1:54 left put the Bucs up by five at the break, 24-19.  David Bremner, pictured here, had ten first-half points.

The Buccaneers kept up the pressure in the second half and jumped out to a nine-point advantage at 28-19 just over two minutes in. SNC cut it down to one at 33-32 with 11:51 remaining, but Beloit went on a 10-2 run in the next three minutes to push the lead back to nine at 43-34 under the ten-minute mark.

After St. Norbert got back within seven with 8:28 left, a pair of James Lazarcik free throws put the Buccaneers back up nine--and that's as close as SNC would get in the final six-plus minutes. Beloit's biggest lead was 13 at several times, the last with 43 seconds remaining.

The Bucs sealed the win with free throws, hitting 15 of 18 charity tosses in the final 3:24.

David Bremner led the Buccaneers with 21 points while Patrick Kenny and Travis Towns each added 11.

Beloit now has some time off for finals before returning to action on Saturday, December 18, when they host Lakeland College in Flood Arena. Game time is at 3:30 p.m.
