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: get your gear on for Blue and Gold Days

September 5, 2013 at 10:46 pm

Time for a show of strength, to wear your pride on your sleeve, to dress for success (or if jeans are your thing, dress down). To see what we mean, check out this video.

Enter Blue and Gold Days: a way to visibly show support for Beloit’s student-athletes and teams.

This new initiative is aimed at giving the entire campus a reason to don their college gear – or just their blue and gold – as a show of support for our students and coaches in the Buccaneer Athletics Office who daily step out in our colors and compete for, and represent, the college.

This fall’s Blue and Gold Days are:

Next Wednesday, Sept. 11:
The day of the home tennis match against Lake Forest College at 4 p.m.

Friday, Sept. 20 (Homecoming):
The day before our cross country (hosting the Olde English Classic) and football (who kick-off vs. Lawrence University at 1 p.m.)

Friday, Oct. 25:
On Friday, the volleyball team faces off against Illinois College at Flood Arena at 7 p.m. Saturday, the women’s and men’s soccer teams play Illinois College at home at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., respectively.

Compete for prizes: To inspire some fun, healthy competition (and to further indulge our community’s penchant for dress-up), the Terrarium will be awarding the best dressed department on campus with a traveling trophy and pizza. We will be dropping in on offices and reviewing submitted photos to see who will win. Send your photos and tips to

Gear up: Need to freshen up or expand your apparel options? Today (Friday) Turtle Creek Bookstore is holding a special 50 percent off sale for all clearance apparel (see the racks at the front of the store).
