Pitzer College Student Engagement Team (SET)

Ready, SET, Go!

Pitzer Students Tell the Story Best

Student callers are essential to the success of the Pitzer Fund, and to bringing our community of alumni, families, and friends together towards a common goal: helping students succeed by raising funds to support the greatest needs on campus. Our callers, known as Student Engagement Advocates, do more than just phone outreach; they help foster meaningful engagement with college events throughout the year and by sharing their Pitzer story. They want to hear about your Pitzer experience, provide you with the latest campus updates, and learn what makes you Pitzer Proud.

Don’t Miss Our Call

Pitzer’s Student Engagement Advocates will be calling from 909.618.1353. If you see that number calling, please pick up, as our students would love to say hello and thank you for the great opportunities and experiences they are receiving at Pitzer!

For more information about our Student Engagement Team, please contact [email protected], assistant director of annual giving.
