2015 Annual Telethon 

Each October, current students are recruited to telephone up to 6000 alumni. That's a lot of phone calls! The purpose of our telethon is to reconnect with our graduates, find out what they've been up to and how they'd like to stay involved. It is also an opportunity for alumni to support LSBU’s Annual Fund – all gifts to the Fund go directly to enhancing student life, whether that’s buying more books for the Library, helping student societies or providing scholarships for some of our brightest and most deserving students. 

Meet our Callers!
