Area student helps Susquehanna University

Lauren Brown of Blue Bell is helping to gain key support for Susquehanna University through its student calling program.

For more than 20 years, the Susquehanna student calling program has raised critical funds for the university. Currently, 39 students participate in the program, which operates for 10 weeks in the fall and six weeks in the spring. Student participants contact parents and alumni to encourage them to support the university by making a donation. Funds raised are used to support scholarships, laboratory equipment, research, athletics, the library and the arts, among other endeavors. The calling program aims to raise about $175,000 this year; last year student callers raised $156,000.

In addition to contacting parents and alumni, Brown’s responsibilities include updating the contact database and informing supporters of what is happening on campus.

Brown, sophomore biology major, is a 2009 graduate of Gwynedd-Mercy Academy and is the daughter of Maripat and Jeffrey Brown.
