The program operates for four weeks per semester, during the fall and winter semesters. Calling shifts are held Sunday through Wednesday evenings 6:30-9:00PM and students are required to work a minimum of two shifts per week. As callers may be one of the few contacts that a particular alum or parent has with the school, callers have the responsibility to be as professional and courteous as possible during the calls. Performance will be evaluated by student calling supervisors and staff manager on a regular basis.
