What Our Alumni Say

Give to the A-B Annual Fund  I 1871 Society What Our Alumni Say

Every year, you will receive a call from our student-staffed Phonathon team. They will ask you to make a pledge toward the AB Annual Fund and give you an opportunity to ask questions about AB or pass along alumni notes. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to meet current students on the phone and see how your yearly gift can impact lives
every day. Whether you pledge or not, do not hang up. Use the opportunity to learn and reminisce.

We sent out postcards asking our alumni and friends to think about their experience at AB and then our team of Phonathon students called and asked for that experience summed up into a single word—or  close to a single word. AB always attracts the brightest minds, so we expected some brilliant words. Listed are just a few of the responses.

Time has proven over and over the wisdom of Johnson's advice and you can continue to ensure the future for Alderson Broaddus University. Join fellow alumni by giving a gift every year that impacts every day.
