Who: Current students who care about our past and future students!

What: Phonathon brings students together from across campus to reach out to alumni and friends of Roberts. These conversations have three main goals: update contact information, swap stories about Roberts, and raise money for the Roberts Fund. 

Where: Calling takes place right on campus.

When: We call alumni and friends of the college between September and April. 

Why: Phonathon uniquely connects past, current, and future Roberts students and impacts every facet of the Roberts community. Conversations serve to connect current students with alumni and each dollar raised benefits current and future Roberts students.

How: We collect contact info on our alumni when they graduate. If you haven’t gotten a call from us in a while, please update your contact information here


Our Goals for the Year:

  • Connect with 2000 campus stakeholders
  • Have participation from 650 alumni
  • Raise $50,000 for the Roberts Fund

“I can speak on behalf of all the Phonathon student callers when I say that we love talking to our alumni and friends of the College! Working for the Phonathon program gives us the chance to meet and talk to people who share our love for Roberts. Each person has a unique and different story to tell…and we enjoy hearing them! Having the opportunity to gain knowledge insight from you, while exchanging fun stories and experiences, is truly a privilege.”

Sean Leduc, Business Management and Social Entrepreneurship Major ’18

Athlete: Golf

As an athlete at Roberts, I know firsthand that I would not be able to be at Roberts without scholarship money. I am extremely thankful that I get to be a part of helping raise scholarship funds for students like me. This experience has allowed me to hear some incredible stories and learn so much about our world through our alumni. I can’t wait to continue this journey this semester!

A special thank you to our generous community partners who gave us supplies to make Phonathon a success!
