Once a month, we’ll profile one of the amazing Phonathon students working in UMBC’s call center. This week, say hello to student caller Callan, class of 2016.
Q: Why did you choose to come to UMBC?
I was initially attracted to UMBC because of the size of the campus and the academic reputation.
Q: What activities do you enjoy outside of class?
I love going to concerts, traveling, and spending time outdoors.
Q: What do you like best about being a student caller?
I love being able to get advice from alumni. It’s nice being able to talk to young alumni because I can relate to them, but it’s also really interesting to talk to alumni who graduated years ago because they have so many years of experience. Not only that, but I like hearing about how much UMBC has changed.
Q: What are your plans after graduation?
As of now I think I would like to be an event planner, but I am hoping to participate in a few more internships before I graduate to explore other possibilities.
Q: What do you enjoy most about UMBC?
I love the class sizes and the dedication of professors. I have had nothing but positive experiences in my classes, especially those for my major. I like how much attention professors are willing and able to give to me due to the small class sizes. It’s also great to feel like the majority of my classmates are just as interested and excited to be here as I am.
