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: Baseball team prepares for weekend games against Ripon

April 18, 2013 at 10:49 pm

This weekend, the baseball team will play four Midwest Conferences games against Ripon College. The Bucs travel to Ripon Saturday (April 20) for two games, beginning at 1 p.m. Sunday, the Bucs play Ripon at home for another double-header, also starting at 1 p.m.

Coach Dave DeGeorge talks to the Terrarium about his team this year, notable games so far, and why people should come see a game, particularly  this weekend.

Q: How has the season been going?

A: We have a very young and inexperienced team. We only have two returning position players who started for us last season. In addition, two of our starting four pitchers are freshman. We struggled during the first part of the season, but we have gained valuable experience and we remain confident we can be one of the top teams in the MWC. In fact, we just opened the conference season with a four-game sweep of Lawrence.

Q: What is your team like this year?

A: The strength of our team is the quality and depth of our pitching staff. We play four games every weekend in conference play, so having a deep pitching staff is critical to our success. Our players are fun to be around and have worked very hard to improve. Every day after practice, I feel uplifted by the joy and effort our guys bring to the team.

Q: Have you had any notable games this year?

A: As I mentioned, we just had a big four-game sweep of Lawrence to start our conference season. The most exciting game of the season was the third game. We were trailing 3-2 going into the ninth inning. Big hits by Andrew Edwards, Adrian Peil, Tyler Peacock, and Grant Henricksen, plus two great bunts by Will Mack and Sean Little allowed us to score five runs in the ninth and win the game 7-3. It was truly a great "team" victory. We played great defense; Dalton Deckert, Andrew Kane, and Henricksen all pitched very well; and we had several guys contribute with the bats.

Q: What’s not to miss this season?

A:  I think we have a fun team to watch. We can pitch, and we have good team speed. This Sunday (April 21), we play Ripon at home in a 1 p.m. double-header. Our rivalry with Ripon is special, and this series will be huge in terms of the conference race.

Q: Why should people come to a baseball game if they haven’t before?

A: Our team plays hard and represents the college very well. It would be great to have as much support as possible. If someone has never been to a Beloit/Ripon baseball game they are in for a treat—both teams play the game the way it is supposed to be played, and it is always a battle.
