Thank You

A special message from some UE phonathon callers. Thank you for doing your part and making an IMPACT.

Phonathon

One of the UE Annual Fund’s most important programs is the student Phonathon Campaign. The Phonathon Campaign employs 30 energetic and bright UE students whose main job is to reach out to our alumni, parents, and friends to update contact information and tell you a little about themselves. Our students truly love to talk to our alumni, parents, and friends, so please consider asking them a few questions and discuss what UE means to you. These students gain valuable work experience and make connections to help them succeed in their UE journey and beyond.

All of our students attend the University of Evansville with help of the financial support of our donors. Please consider pledging your support again this year with your student caller. They truly appreciate and understand the need of every dollar donated to UE!

Meet your 2014-15 student callers:
