Monday, Feb. 3, 2014: Awareness Day

Your Tusculum experience would not be possible without the generosity of our donors.  Everything from spaces on campus to materials in the classrooms is a result of gifts made to Tusculum College.  Take a look at the signs around campus and learn how students benefit from outstanding donor support.  Institutional Advancement will have a table in the Commons today from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. where you can compete in a class Penny War (with proceeds going to the Tusculum Fund), participate in a campus-wide scavenger hunt about well-known Tusculum College donors (for a prize at the end of the week), and learn about the Office of Institutional Advancement. When you come by you can enter the raffle for a prize drawing at the end of the day.

 

Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014: Tusculum College Appreciation Day

Take part in Thank-a-thon, your opportunity to give a nod to those who have had a part in enabling your Tusculum experience—from renovated classrooms and new materials to whole buildings and scholarship funds. Share your thanks by stopping by the Institutional Advancement table in Niswonger Commons.  We will be there from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with a photo booth and props.  We will take your picture holding “Thank You” signs that will be posted on Tusculum’s Institutional Advancement web page for our donors to see.  When you participate you can enter the raffle for a prize drawing at the end of the day.  The class Penny War jars will also be available during this time.

 

Wednesday, Feb. 5, 2014: Community Appreciation Day

Today is part two of Thank-a-thon!  Thank a local person or business for their positive role in our community.  Today we will provide materials for you to say thanks to local businesses that have been there for Tusculum College for years.  Come by and sign a thank-you note from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and enter the raffle for a prize drawing at the end of the day.  The class Penny War jars will also be available during this time.

 

Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014: Participation Day

Do something good today for someone else and tweet about it!  Tweet @TusculumCollege and use the hashtag #TusculumGivesBack.  Your act of kindness can be anything—bring cookies to class, pay for someone else’s coffee at The Perk, pick up litter on campus—be creative!  And whatever you do, we want to hear about it!  Also on Participation Day, we would like you to know about your opportunity, as a student, to start giving back right now in order to help keep the Tusculum experience going for future generations of Pioneers.  Stop by the Institutional Advancement table in Niswonger Commons from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  to learn about the Tusculum Fund and its role in your education here at Tusculum.  There will also be a raffle for a prize at the end of the day and the class Penny War jars will be available during this time.

 

Friday, Feb. 7, 2014: Celebration Day

Today is the day to celebrate 220 years of philanthropy at Tusculum, and the dreams and goals you will be able to accomplish because of your education here.  We are asking you the question: “If money were not an object and you could do something for any person or place, what would it be?” Come write your answer on our “Dream Wall” in the Commons from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and enter the raffle for a prize, participate in the class Penny War, and eat some food!  Today is also the deadline to turn in your scavenger hunt.
