Learn more about the Tusculum Fund, your way to help your Alma Mater!

Posted on 26 July 2011 by eestes@tusculum.edu

Providing technology resources for students is one of the areas of the Tusculum Fund.

You may have seen the Tusculum Fund mentioned in a magazine or other communication from the College and wondered what it is.

The Tusculum Fund is very important to the success of the College and provides resources to the College to meet its mission of providing a quality education to your student.

The Tusculum Fund is the primary fund through which alumni and friends provide unrestricted support to the College, allowing Tusculum to use the funds where they are most urgently needed while at the same time supplementing the overall operating budget.

This support benefits current students in continuing to reach their educational goals and serves as a benchmark of the involvement of our alumni with their Alma Mater for funding decisions made by foundations and corporations.

Areas of the Tusculum Fund include scholarships, academic programs, technology, the library, Pioneer Club (athletics) and area sof greatest need.

 

Every gift to the Tusculum Fund matters. Participation in the Tusculum Fund, no matter the size of the gift, is viewed as a measure of alumni satisfaction, demonstrating alumni loyalty, which influences the  College’s ability to secure grants from corporations and foundations.

Gifts of ANY and ALL sizes from alumni, parents and friends of the College are critical to Tusculum’s current and future success as a renown liberal arts college. Colleges that achieve a higher percent in alumni giving participation are, in general, more highly respected and receive more funding opportunities.

There are annual campaigns that reach different constituencies of the College. The Phonathan focuses on alumni and the annual Faculty and Staff Campaign involves current employees of the College. The Senior Class Gift Campaign involves current students, who give for a specific project on campus. Recent Senior Class Gift campaigns have resulted in refurbished campus entrance signs, new lamps for the Arch, a case to display academic awards and a sidewalk from Katherine Hall to Shiloh Road.

 

The Parent Campaign invites current students to go above and beyond tuition and enhance the everyday and immediate needs faced by Tusculum. The Tusculum Fund allows parents to designate their gift to a particular program, providing Pioneer parents with another opportunity to directly impact the quality of their child’s education today and to ensure the  continued growth of Tusculum College in the future.

The staff of Tusculum College completed the food drive in June and delivered the items personally to the organization.

The Daily Bread is an organization in the Morristown downtown area. It was started by Hobe Williams, who is now 86, to feed the hungry. He started out as a service for the homeless, now he feeds anyone in need.

According to Audrey Brackens, projects and events chairman for the Tusculum College Staff Council, Williams relies solely on donations to operate, he gets no federal funding. Brackens and her committee organized the food drive project for Tusculum College.

The mission of the Tusculum College Staff Council is to improve communications across the college campuses and build morale for all employees of Tusculum College. The council strives to enhance the overall quality of work life for the Tusculum College staff and increase employee engagement in the larger college community by providing educational development and social opportunities for staff employees.

Tusculum College receives over 3,200 applications for admission, sets record

Posted on 20 July 2011 by srichey@tusculum.edu

The Tusculum College Office of Residential Admission has a new record to celebrate. To date, the residential college has received 3,281 applications for admission for the 2011-2012 academic year. A record was set for the recent academic year as well, with 3,087 applications received at this time last year. The 2011-2012 application record is expected to increase, as Tusculum continues to accept applications for the upcoming academic year.

The steady increase in applications is an exciting challenge for the Office of Residential Admission, according to Melissa Ripley, director of admission for the college. She added, an increase in applications also means an increase in applicant credentials and evaluation.

“Applicant evaluations usually include mid-year and end-of-year reviews of credentials as Tusculum College strives to meet the needs of future Pioneers and their families,” said Ripley.

The Processing Department of the Office of Residential Admission, where applications are initially received, notes that even with the significant increase in applications, customer service is still the top priority.
