Students wishing to call alumni and friends of the university during this year's Tech Loyalty Fund Phonathon still have time to apply. The deadline for phonathon applications is today at 5 p.m.
The phonathon will start on Sunday, February 13, and run through Wednesday, March 16. The phonathon helps raise funds for the university to provide scholarships and departmental support, and last year's phonathon raised more than $38,000 for the university.
In all, organizers say they hope to hire about 30 Tech students to work as callers. Students selected will be expected to work at least two shifts each week, and the students will be calling each evening from 5:45-9 p.m.
Kristin Smith, director of the Tech Loyalty Fund, says the phonathon depends on students. She adds, “The students play a pivotal part of the phonathon because they can tell the Arkansas Tech story better than anyone. Our alumni are interested in hearing a student’s perspective on the campus and what all is taking place at Arkansas Tech.”
Students interested in being a caller should pick up an application online or by visiting Career Services, Financial Aid or Room 209 of the Administration Building.
Those applying must also go by Room 209 of the Administration Building to sign up for a time to interview for the position, and interviews will take place through Wednesday.
