The Stephens Fund phonathon returned to campus this year. In 10 days, 28 students called 4,947 alumnae and raised $56,362 from 692 donors. Alumnae repeatedly said how pleased they were that students were calling again. Several alumnae shared memories of working on the phonathon when they were students. The students learned a lot and had a little fun in the process.
