The autumn Telephone Campaign kicked-off on Saturday 25 October.
Over the next month, a team of student callers will be talking to a number of our UK-based alumni to share their experiences and memories of Kent and to tell them about the exciting plans the University has lined up for our 50th anniversary, including our fantastic Alumni Reunion Weekend in September 2015.
The students will also talk to alumni about the Kent Opportunity Fund, which has been established from alumni donations and supports students at Kent through funding for student projects, scholarships and hardship bursaries, enabling them to develop their skills whilst also increasing their employability prospects.
Through the Telephone Campaign, we hope to seek support for the Kent Opportunity Fund and to show how our alumni can make a real difference to the lives of those who have followed in their footsteps. Every donation received during our 50th anniversary year will receive a 25% top-up by the University, making every pound donated go even further, and therefore helping even more students.
Working alongside the Careers and Employability Service, we will also be speaking to a group of new graduates about the DLHE (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education) survey which they may be receiving shortly, and encouraging them to complete it.
The Telephone Campaign is due to end on Sunday 23 November. For any queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
