TechLine (Call Center)

"TechLine offers students the unique opportunity to connect and share personal and professional experiences with our Michigan Tech alumni. It’s an awesome opportunity to talk with many generations of alumni and learn how the University has grown and changed over the years. Conversing with fellow Huskies has given me the ability and confidence required to hold a professional conversation both over the phone and in person. It is very rewarding to see how the funds I help raise impact student life on campus. TechLine is a special place to work and I am grateful to be a part of it."—Mykie Mayberg, TechLine caller

History

In 1977, Michigan Tech Student Foundation was founded, ushering in the first group of students to pick up their phones to call alumni across the United States. About 15 student callers raised thousands of dollars for the Annual Fund in their first year—sparking Michigan Tech’s rich TechLine tradition.

Since its inception, TechLine, the student call center, has grown to become the largest fundraising opportunity for current students to become involved with on campus. Beginning July 1 of each year, students work together to call thousands of alumni, parents, and friends of the University. Student callers share news of exciting things happening on campus in the coming year, and procure donations for programs and activities that each Tech student benefits from daily.
