If you are an alum and you receive a phone call from a student, it just may be Claire on the phone. The psychology major, high school mentor, and aspiring social worker is one of 12 students on Geneseo’s phonathon team.

The team called and spoke to nearly 4,000 alums in 2022 to update their contact and career information, raise money for Geneseo, and chat about what’s new on campus. Donors have contributed more than $162,000 through phonathon calls in the last three years. This year, student callers raised more than $61,000 for the College by April.
