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: There's a first time for everything--Beloit hosts conference tourney

May 8, 2011 at 9:19 pm


The Beloit College baseball team is hosting the Midwest Conference Tournament for the first time ever next weekend. It’s the second time in three seasons,and just the third time since 1986, that the  team has gotten into the tournament. The tourney runs this coming Friday (May 13,) through Saturday (May 14) at The Ballpark at Strong Stadium.

The winner of the four-team tournament gets the MWC’s automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Tournament, which begins on May 18.

The last time the Bucs got in the tourney was in 2009, when they won their first, and only, MWC Championship.Their first tourney experience came in 1995, when they went 2-2, finally getting knocked out by Illinois College in the championship game, 15-7.

All that means the Buccaneers have been in two MWC Tournaments and played in the championship game both times. A return to the top spot in 2011 is within reach--on their home turf, no less

The Bucs went 3-0 last week, all non-conference games, with a sweep of Milwaukee School of Engineering and a come-from-behind win over Rockford College. 

Buccaneer Outdoor Track & Field had their final tune-up on Saturday for the MWC Outdoor Championships, competing at the Wisconsin Twilight Meet in Madison. Kenny Williams finished second in the 400m hurdles to lead the Beloit performances while Erika Moen tied for third in the discus to pace the women’s squad.
