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.”

Inside Buccaneer Sports: Get ready for the indoor track season

February 19, 2012 at 10:05 pm

The Buccaneer track and field squad will compete at the Midwest Conference Indoor Championships this coming weekend at Illinois College in Jacksonville, Ill. With that ahead it’s a good chance to take a look at Beloit College indoor track history.

The MWC started holding Indoor track championship meets in 1977 for the men and in 1984 for the women.  The Buccaneers have never captured a team title but there have been plenty of noteworthy individual performances.

Two of the most memorable performers were inducted into the Beloit College Athletic Hall of Honor a couple of weeks ago. 

Stephanie Muller’01 was a seven-time indoor champion for the Bucs, winning the 20-pound weight all four years and taking the shot put crown in three of those seasons. She still holds the Buccaneer records in the weight and shot for indoors. 

Zac Freudenburg’01 pulled off an impressive triple at the 1998 indoor meet, winning the 1000, 1500 and 5000 meter races. He still holds the Beloit record in those three events, and is the record-holder in the 3000m.

Brad Lang ’81 also recorded a three-championship meet, winning the 60-yard high hurdles, the 300-yard run and the long jump his senior year, setting conference records in all three events, while earning meet MVP honors.

The longest-standing indoor record on the Buccaneer books is Greg Hoffman’s 51’5 ½ effort in the shot put in 1978. On the women’s side Heidi Rosenwald ran the two-mile in 11:44.59 in 1989. Since that event is no longer run it’s a record that will never be surpassed. Among records that can be broken, Stephanie Hansen recorded a 35’6 ½ triple jump in 1990.

Are there legendary record-setters for the Bucs heading into this year’s championship meet? We’ll know by Saturday night.
