Cardiff Met is Calling
The Student Calling Team
It’s that time of year again! Between now and 2nd March 2014 around 2500 alumni will be contacted by current Cardiff Met students as part of our Development Fund Campaign.
For our students, these calls are a great opportunity to speak to alumni who have studied the same course or lived in the same halls. Career advice, or tips on how to make the most of the Cardiff Met experience are very welcome along with any memorable stories from your time here that you may wish to share.
The student will be able to fill you in on ways that your Alumni Network can help you and will discuss a variety of ways that you can support current Cardiff Met students such as;
- Making a donation to the Development Fund
- Offering a student a placement at your workplace
- Mentoring a student that is keen to get into your field of work
- Giving a guest lecture
- Attending networking events for students and alumni
The student will let you know about coming back to visit and ways that the University can help you to organise reunions with your old classmates.
During the two week telephone campaign last year, over £25,000 in donations was pledged in support of our Development Fund, which will help current and future students in their studies. Many alumni have also generously given their time to support our students. Staff and students are incredibly grateful to all of our supporters. You can read all about how you have made an impact in Horizons Newsletter.
The Vice Chancellor will be contacting you by letter in the coming weeks if you are due to receive a call this year. If you would like to be included in the list to be called by a student please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The campaign is supported by local businesses, for which we are very grateful:
