It’s Phone-a-thon Time


Phones will ring in the name of philanthropy next week for the annual College of Health Professions Phone-a-thon fundraiser scheduled for Feb. 24, 25 and 27 in the I. Dodd Wilson Education Building, Room 226.

The Phone-a-thon, sponsored by Verizon Wireless, is a student-driven event. CHP students will call alumni and friends asking for support of scholarships in the college.  As in the past years, 100 percent of donations secured will benefit CHP scholarships. Students will make calls from 6–8:30 p.m. Last year, college supporters pledged about $18,000 during Phone-a-thon.

Those not available during the calling hours can give a gift or make a pledge to the College of Health Professions online at Look for the college under the “Where to Give” section.
