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.”

The Buc Report: In case you haven't noticed

February 13, 2011 at 10:26 pm



By now you have probably seen the new main court in Flood Arena, which was completed in August and includes a large “B” at center court. But what you may have missed recently are 54 new additions that further enhance the arena.

Thanks to generous help from James'49 and Joan Dahlquist'47 Flood, who provided the lead gift for the construction of the facility back in 1987, new blue and gold conference championship banners hang high above both endlines on the main court.

From the first conference title (football, 1923) to the most recent (baseball, 2009), all 54 league crowns the Buccaneers have won are proudly recognized.

If you haven’t seen them you can stop by any time and have a look.  Or you can see them and cheer on the Buccaneer basketball teams as they host their home finales this Wednesday night against Carroll University. Game time for the women’s team is 5 p.m. while the men are scheduled to tip off at 7 p.m.



Men’s Basketball (9-12, 8-8 MWC) went 1-1 last week, including an upset of then 17th-ranked St. Norbert College in De Pere, the second time this season they defeated the nationally-ranked Green Knights. They host Carroll University for Senior Night on Wednesday at 7 p.m. before closing the season at Ripon College on Saturday afternoon.

Women’s Basketball (8-13, 6-10 MWC) went 1-2 last week, defeating Lawrence University on Senior Day Saturday in Flood Arena. They host Carroll University at 5 p.m. on Wednesday night in the home finale before ending the season at Ripon College on Saturday afternoon.

Men’s and Women’s Swimming & Diving was idle last week as they continued preparing for the Midwest Conference Championships this coming Friday through Sunday at Grinnell College.

Men’s and Women’s Track & Field had a record five first-place finishes at the Knox College Invitational on Saturday, with Ellie Daniels winning both the long jump and triple jump. They are scheduled to compete at the UW-Stevens Point Pointer/Eastbay Invite on Saturday.
