Topper Talk

Make a Gift


Topper Talk

Topper Talk (Formerly Phonathon) began in 1981 as a volunteer-based program that only lasted a few weeks each year. In 1998, the program moved to a year-round effort, enabling student callers to contact more alumni and friends than ever before. Currently, 50 student callers place calls to more than 50,000 alumni and friends of WKU throughout the year.

Dollars pledged through the Topper Talk program support the various academic departments, student organizations and athletic programs throughout WKU’s campus. Many times, the call you receive from a student caller is the only contact you will have with WKU in a given year. Our goal is to not only increase alumni participation in the Annual Fund, but also connect alumni and friends back to the University.

The Topper Talk program is housed in the Augenstein Alumni Center Room 210 in the Leigh Roy Bell Call Center. Calls are placed between the hours of 5:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., Sunday through Thursday nights.
