SkyTalk: Stonehill’s Phonathon Program

SkyTalk is the latest incarnation of the long standing calling program at Stonehill. Located in the remodeled Merkert-Tracy Hall, we call Monday-Thursday, 5:30 -8:30 PM, soliciting alumni and parents for support of the College. The program connects current students with alumni, allowing them learn about the history of Stonehill, while sharing what life is like today as a Stonehill student.

“The connection I made with the alum gave me motivation to continue to have a great night of calling, and gave me confidence for calling throughout the rest of the year.” Theresa ’16


“Phonathon is really interesting and fun because you get to speak with a variety of alumni, from when the school was just new to more recent years.”- Eva ’17


“I rarely leave a conversation feeling that I did not learn something new about that Alum. In fact, I frequently end conversations wishing that I could re-contact them and ask them to coffee.” – Ryann ’16


“A call is really successful when the caller and the alum can build a connection. It is always great to have the alum remember why they chose to come to Stonehill in the first place.”- Matt ’16
