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 designation is “a pretty big deal,” says Beloit College Sports Information Director Terry Owens. “The team is nominated and voted on by sports information directors across the nation, not just in the region. That means James' grade point, major and statistics were impressive enough to have people who have never heard of him take notice. It's really a great thing for James and Beloit College nationally.”

To be eligible for Academic All-American consideration a student athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.30, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standing and be nominated by the institution’s sports information director. Only First Team Academic All-District selections are eligible for Academic All-American honors.

Lazarcik led the team in 13 different categories this past season, including scoring (17.5), rebounding (11.3), field goal percentage (67.7%), free throw percentage (78.5%) and blocked shots (1.3). He leads the conference in rebounding, field goal percentage, and double-doubles, and ranks fourth in scoring. Nationally he tops NCAA Division III in field goal percentage.

The Bucs finished the 2012-13 season with a 12-11 overall record, including 10-8 in Midwest Conference play.  Their 12 wins were the most since the 2001-02 season while their ten conference victories were the most since the 1992-93 season.
