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.”

Sports update: Buccaneers headed back to conference tournament

May 9, 2012 at 12:05 am

The Beloit College baseball team got some help from a familiar foe, but the bottom line is: the Buccaneers are heading back to the Midwest Conference Baseball Tournament for the second straight season, and the third time in four seasons.

St. Norbert College took the first three games from Ripon College in their season-ending MWC series, including an 8-5 win in Ripon on Monday, to give Beloit the no. 2-seed in the MWC North Division. St. Norbert won the Division on Saturday.

The Buccaneers will take on the South Division’s no. 1 seed Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa, at 9 a.m. Friday morning. St. Norbert will play the South’s no. 2 seed Knox College at William Penn University, also at 9 a.m., in the other opening game.

After those first two games all games will be played at Grinnell.

The winner of the tournament earns the MWC Championship and a berth in the NCAA Division III Tournament, which begins the week of May 14.

The Buccaneers, 17-19 overall and 9-7 in the MWC, won their first-ever MWC Championship in 2009 at St. Norbert College.  After missing the tourney in 2010 they won the North Division last season and hosted the tournament for the first time, falling to Ripon in a winner-take-all championship game late on the second day.
