Alumni Phone-a-thon: We’re calling on you!

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Alumni Phone-a-thonDid you know that the Alumni Phone-a-thon is more than a method for your alma mater to ask for a gift? You can benefit from the call by comparing your UWGB experience with our callers, or by asking them about alumni benefits. We use the call to update our records so that  you are certain to receive Inside, your alumni magazine.

Of course, we’d also love for you to consider a donation to support student scholarships so that other UW-Green Bay students can have that same great experience you had. Can’t give this year? That’s understandable, but please help us maintain contact by answering the call! Majors to be called in October include Social Work, Nursing, Human Development, Psychology and Growth and Development.
