Welcome to the Phone Center at St. Thomas

What is the Phone Center?

We are a group of 50 St. Thomas students who call alumni, parents and friends of the university. This enthusiastic group of students is an extension of the St. Thomas Annual Giving team and works to raise funds and connect alumni with campus. We are looking forward to speaking with you!

We enjoy speaking with our Tommie Network and raising funds for university programs such as scholarships, academics, athletics, technology and the Annual Fund (to name a few). So as you can see, student communicators play a very important role in improving the St. Thomas experience for every student.
