Student Caller Group

Student callers develop valuable professional skills

Each fall and spring semester, UL Lafayette students call alumni and friends across the country to update contact information, discuss recent campus advancements and solicit philanthropic support for the University. Student callers develop valuable professional skills and raise critical funding for our campus community. The phonathon allows current students to engage with alumni and strengthens the alumni relationship with the University. During the 2017-2018 fiscal year, students completed almost 30,000 calls and raised over $234,000 in gifts and pledges.
