Who will be the Best. Class. Ever. (in 2017)
4 days. 16 classes. The class of 2007 won the Best. Class. Ever Trophy as the 2017 Beaver Madness Champion.
Beaver Madness was a four-day class giving challenge for Bluffton’s young alumni (classes 2001-2016.) The bracket-style challenge began Monday, March 20, and concluded at midnight Thursday, March 23. The class with the most alumni donors (and student thank you Tweets) at the end of each round advanced.
Your participation matters! Each and every gift to Bluffton is important and makes a difference. Give today!
