What is the Student Calling Program?

Bucknell University’s Student Calling Program helps alumni and parents stay connected to the University. Throughout the academic year, approximately 80 students from various backgrounds dedicate time to hear about your Bucknell experience, update you on campus news, ensure that your information on file is correct and ask for your support of the Bucknell Fund.

When your phone rings with the 570 area code, please answer the call to speak with a student who is eager to hear about your time at Bucknell!

Bucknell's division of Development and Alumni Relations is phenomenal in its abilities to form and continuously build great networks with current students and alumni!

I like working for the Student Calling Program because it gives me the opportunity to connect with alumni, assist with the advancement of Bucknell, and work with the wonderful staff. The dedication and support the callers and admin bring to the environment is heartwarming. During the short time I have been here, I have observed how much SCP contributes to the campus and have talked to so many alumni who enjoyed their Bucknell experience — Bucknellians who became leaders and use their valuable Bucknell experience in their current career.

Hearing alumni reminisce on their past experiences at Bucknell makes me appreciate where I am and value the four years ahead of me that much more. It's interesting to hear how people took their Bucknell education and used it to their advantage in the work world - especially when I get to talk to individuals who had the same major as me. Working here is a great way to meet new people and build connections within the Bucknell community.

I love working for SCP because I love hearing various alumni experiences, whether it be their major, clubs that they participated in, or other memories they made here on campus. It is amazing to hear how much alumni love Bucknell, and it makes me even more excited for my time here. Plus, it is always nice to have a pleasant phone call with someone that can brighten up both participants' days. I am so lucky and grateful to be part of such an amazing opportunity here on campus and look forward to all of the calls I get to make in the future!
