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.”

Women’s lacrosse closes second season with 10 wins

April 29, 2014 at 7:25 am

The Beloit College women's lacrosse team finished up their 2014 season with a 21-4 loss at undefeated Midwest Women's Lacrosse Conference-leader Augustana College on Sunday, closing out with a 10-7 overall record, 6-4 in the MWLC.

Despite the loss the second-season program showed marked improvement compared with their inaugural campaign. The 2014 Buccaneers posted a 10-win season, compared to just four victories in 2013, and the six MWLC victories and battle for a spot in the Conference Tournament into the season's final weekend is much different from last season's two wins in league play.

Augustana scored the first six goals of the game before Libby Storrick’16 hit the back of the net at the 22:00 mark. After a seventh AC goal, Michelle Dillon’16 made it 7-2 at 19:30. But the Vikings scored nine goals to close out the first half for a 16-2 lead at the break.

The Vikings upped their nine-goal run to 14 straight after scoring the first five in the second half.  Sara Fithian’16 stopped the run, and closed out the scoring, with back-to-back goals with 2:50 and 28 seconds remaining, the second goal coming from the free position.

Marie Bonine’17 made six saves in net in the opening half, while Celeste Jenkins had four saves in the second 30 minutes.
