“It’s rewarding to know that the work we’re doing here is contributing to the overall success of the university. Our rankings continue to rise each year, and I feel like we’ve played a huge role in making that happen. As a scholarship recipient myself, I am grateful for all the gifts and donations made so that students like me can attend a great university like UCI. On top of that, I enjoy keeping the UCI spirit and pride alive for our alumni community!”

"UCI’s Telephone Outreach Program is such a tremendous and rare experience, one that I don’t think you can get anywhere else on campus. You have the opportunity to learn about so many more facets of UCI that I probably would not have known about. I know the value of my degree because of this well-rounded perspective. It’s a good feeling to know that I am helping to fund student scholarships and enrich campus life. When I graduate, I look forward to having future callers call me someday so I can give back to UCI.”

“Working as a T.O.P. caller has really helped me break out of my shell. I’ve not only developed close-knit friendships with the other T.O.P. callers, I’ve also been able to build relationships with the alumni and parent community we call. I walk around campus and take pride in the fact that we’re helping to fund research opportunities and all the campus and academic resources available to students. It exciting to be a part of something that has such a huge impact on the university.”
