Student callers share their experiences of speaking with Imperial alumni

Our team of callers is always composed of students from across all four Faculties, from first year undergraduates to PhD candidates, all with their own unique experience of Imperial. Together they contact thousands of alumni in the UK, mainland Europe, and around the world. They have been wonderful ambassadors for Imperial and the funds that they raise help to support their fellow students, and the wider College community.

Recent student callers have shared what they enjoyed about working on a telephone campaign, and why the support of Imperial alumni is so important to them:
