Student Caller Program

Student callers holding up a thank you sign

Each year Lakehead University students phone our alumni, parents and friends to share news, update information and extend invitations to events.  Students also discuss how making a philanthropic gift can make a significant impact on campus and to student life.

Our enthusiastic student callers are always excited to listen to stories from our alumni and share their current experience.  They love the opportunity to have meaningful conversations.  For our student callers the program is more than just a job, it’s a chance to be part of group of passionate Lakehead ambassadors.  There is no one else on campus who knows more about the benefits of being part of the Alumni Association and staying engaged, whether it is the sharing of time, talent or treasure.

Any gifts received through the Student Caller Program support the Lakehead Annual Fund, but donors are always welcome to designate their gift to another area within the University.

Calling begins in the fall and runs through to the spring.  If you haven’t heard from one of our students, please update your information using our secure online form here or by calling our toll-free number at 1-800-832-8972.
