Annual Fund - Phone Center Campaign

Aquinas Alumni Enjoy Staying in Touch!

Our Phone Center students enthusiastically assist alumni with contact information updates, employment changes, relationship up-dates (births, deaths, etc.), as well as other news and information. This information is confidential and used solely by the College. It is never sold. In turn, student callers eagerly share Aquinas news, upcoming campus events, and facilitate any questions you or other alumni might have.


The students who staff the Phone Center are bright, dynamic leaders and scholarship recipients. Each student has a commitment to the quality education they are receiving at Aquinas. They also are grateful for the financial assistance they receive. As students, they are already giving back to the College through their dedicated service at the Phone Center.
