Student Caller

Annual Giving Program

At the Annual Giving Program, we call alumni and parents of University of Oregon students and raise funds for academics. While working at the call center, I would have 5-15 minute conversations with the prospects informing them of the improvements on campus. I would also inquire about the students experience. I would then ask if they could make a financial contribution to the University of Oregon to be used strictly for academics.
