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.”

Buc Report: It’s all in the family

November 27, 2012 at 5:32 pm

It’s not impossible, but it is unusual: Right now, a pair of siblings is playing the same sport at the same time.

The brother-sister duo is Laramie and Lana Wieseman from Lake Geneva, Wis., who are on the men’s and women’s basketball teams this year.

Buccaneer, Buc report 

“It’s pretty laid back,” says Laramie of what it’s like for them each to play the sport at Beloit. They say there is no sibling rivalry or any competition−with each other, at least.

“There’s competition on our teams but not between each other,” says Laramie, who has been out so far this season due to an injury sustained in practices. He plans to return after winter break.

Laramie is a junior in his third season with the Bucs, and Lana is a first-year. She says though it’s nice having her brother here for the support, she chose to come to Beloit because of its strong academics.

Lana plans to major in biology and is interested in pursuing a career in healthcare, and Laramie is a biology/education double major who wants to be a high school biology teacher.

While they don’t practice together now, they did play together growing up. They each went on to play all four years in high school for the Lake Geneva Badgers, where their two younger siblings, a high school sophomore and senior, are currently on the varsity teams.

Basketball was a big part of their childhood, and their family often went to games together; now Laramie and Lana’s parents continue that tradition, coming to Flood Arena to see their two Bucs play in their (often back-to-back) college basketball games.

“It’s nice being close to home so our family can come watch us play,” Lana says.

Check out the Wiesemans in action at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. tonight in De Pere, Wis., as they take on St. Norbert.
