OC's annual fall fundraising call-out is just around the corner, and starting soon, current OC students will be calling all alumni to solicit financial support for the University's general scholarship fund. As we make final preparations for the call out, we wanted to give you a few reasons why you should pick up the phone when you see our number on your caller ID.
You may have heard that enrollment at OC is the second highest it has been in our 58 year history. In addition to everything that else that OC has to offer, one of the reasons we've been able to recruit and keep such an increasing number of students each year has been the quality and quantity of scholarships that we offer. By making a gift to OC's general scholarship fund, you make receiving a top notch Christian education more affordable for our current and future students.
Having said that, we also understand that not all of our alumni will support OC with a financial contribution. If you fit into that category, the call-out is also a great time to update your contact information with us so that we can keep you informed of all the exciting things going on at here at your University throughout the year.
One final way you can support OC during the call-out is by taking the time to thank the caller on the other end of the line for what they are doing to help your alma-mater. Calling people to ask for money can be a very exhausting experience for anyone... much less a college student who's just trying to earn a few extra dollars to help put him or herself through school. Regardless of whether or not you make a donation, you can make a positive impact on the OC experience of our student callers just by encouraging them to finish strong and taking a few moments to talk to them about their lives.
