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 21st season, Coach DeGeorge nearing 300 wins

March 7, 2011 at 6:29 am


Dave DeGeorge, class of 1989, stepped into the third base coaching box in Auburndale, Florida, yesterday to begin his 21st season as the head coach of the Buccaneer baseball team.

Including yesterday’s results, DeGeorge has accumulated 281 career wins, the second-most coaching wins of any coach, in any sport, in Beloit College history. He trails only Bill Knapton, who won 557 games in a legendary 40-season career as head coach of the Buccaneer men’s basketball team.

He’s even zoomed past his dad, Ed DeGeorge, who won 135 games.

In his 20 previous seasons, DeGeorge has coached nearly 50 First Team All-Midwest Conference players plus seven All-Region players. 

Here’s to a successful season which sees him eclipse the 300-career victory plateau.



Baseball split a season-opening doubleheader with Webster University to open their 2011 season on Sunday in Auburndale, Florida, winning 3-0 in game one before falling 9-5 in game two, in eight innings.  They’ve got six more games left on the trip, plus three junior varsity games. Their trip ends on Saturday.

Softball split a pair of games to open their 2011 season, topping Mt. St. Joseph College of Ohio 3-0 in the opener before falling to Baldwin-Wallace College of Ohio 9-1 in the second game. They’ve got eight more games on the trip, which wraps up on Friday.
