Will You Answer the Call? - MSOE Phonathon

Support Milwaukee School of Engineering

Answer the Call - Support our Students

Each spring and fall, a group of dedicated students reach out to some of our alumni and friends to share updates from campus. Our students love hearing stories from your time on campus, your real-world experience in industries they look forward to joining, and advice you have as they prepare to join the work force. 

Gifts from Phonathon support the areas of greatest need on campus through our Fund for MSOE, or another area of your choosing. Your investment in the MSOE community helps to ensure that our students have access to the tools they need to rethink what is possible. Thanks to you, they are connected to internships at some of the most diverse workplaces Milwaukee offers, taught by industry experienced professors on a campus that is experiencing an amazing revitalization and prepared to solve the complex problems of today and tomorrow when they graduate.

Pay it forward to future MSOE alums. Your support can have an immediate impact on our students' experience at MSOE.
