Who We Are
Phonathon callers are Kalamazoo College students who are excited to speak with you about the latest news on campus. They answer your questions and enjoy hearing alumni share their K stories. Student callers seek feedback from parents about their students’ experience. They confirm contact information and ask for financial support for the Kalamazoo College Fund. While on the phone with alumni, parents and friends, student callers sharpen their communication skills and learn the importance of philanthropy.
Students are the heart of Kalamazoo College; that is why we hire K student callers to share the important message about giving to Kalamazoo College. Our Phonathon team consists of a group of 35-40 students callers who are committed to enhancing the K experience for students of today and tomorrow. They value the liberal arts education they receive and realize the lifelong return on investment it provides.
