The University of Houston Call Center, located here on our main campus in McElhinney, employs 30+ UH students who reach out to alumni, parents and UH friends nearly year-round to rally support for University initiatives. Their mission is to increase annual participation in giving to UH and to provide information about campus developments, programs and events. UH student callers are committed to helping continue a meaningful connection to your university and dedicated to actively engaging our community in helping to maintain and improve the UH experience.

"I've gotten these calls from UH and my other university before...but [Tijuhna] didn't just read a spiel or sound like a salesman. She was so genuine - what a great example for UH students! I'm even going to share my experience with the folks at [my other university]."
Mary Ann Pringle '87 speaking of friendly conversation with CougarCaller Tijuhna Green.
Tijuhna Green has been recognized by our Diamond Club, with more than $100,000 raised for UH during her tenure as a student caller.
