Poster sales help keep doors to learning open

November 30, 2011

The entryways to some of the University of Wisconsin–Madison’s most iconic buildings — the bannered Bascom Hall, the archway to Camp Randall and the imposing wood-and-iron doors to the Red Gym — are among the photos featured on a poster benefiting need-based scholarships.

“Doors of UW–Madison” features 25 images of iconic entranceways — including the marble Rathskeller and Washburn Observatory — as well as more modern sites such as Grainger Hall and the Biotechnology Center’s glassy facade.

The Division of Enrollment Management developed the poster as a special incentive to help support UW–Madison students through the Great People Scholarship Campaign. For more information about the campaign, click here.

The division’s June Ganser says that volunteer photographers enjoyed taking pictures of doors across campus.

“We have a lot of interesting doors on campus that represent opportunity for students. The poster makes a nice holiday gift — both to the person who receives the poster and to students who benefit from the scholarships,” Ganser says.

The posters can be purchased for $20 at the University Book Store at its State Street and Hilldale locations.

They can also be purchased by sending a check ($25 includes shipping and handling, $30 for international) along with your name and mailing address to DEM Posters, 333 East Campus Mall, Madison, WI 53715-1376.
