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.”

Beloit College Football junior offensive lineman Hayden Simonis earned his second straight All-Midwest Conference honor and freshman return specialist Lukeson Versulien his first when the conference recently released the 2012 All-Midwest Conference Football team. The team is selected by a vote of head coaches.

Simonis, a left tackle from Janesville, Wis. earned honorable mention laurels this season.  He was a Second Team pick in 2011.


Versulien, a wide receiver/wing back from Delray Beach, Fla., was third in the conference in kickoff return average and fourth in all-purpose yardage for the Bucs. He averaged 125.5 yards per game in all-purpose, including 21.8 on kickoff returns; he was second on the team in receiving with 280 yards and third with 133 rushing yards.  His four touchdowns for 24 points tied for the squad’s scoring lead.
