Telephone Campaign 2022

Meet our team of student callers

The 2022 Telephone Campaign will take place over two weeks from 28 March to 11 April. As a team of student callers, we hope to connect with and learn from our predecessors, and talk about some of the projects going on at the College.

The ongoing support of alumni is essential to so many aspects of Hall life. In 2021, 1,454 Aularians supported the Hall; allowing Teddy Hall to provide financial assistance to 20% of current students, foster Hall Spirit and connect with over 2,800 secondary school students through its access and outreach work. More can be done this year. We are excited to introduce the ‘HALLmarks Campaign’ so as part of the call, we would also love to give you a first-hand account of the different ways that the Hall plans to support us further.

Interests…Stand-up comedy has been a major focus for me over the past year, and one of the best parts of performing has been getting to watch other comedians be totally amazing at what they do. I also love choral singing and folk music!

Hopes to… Pursue comedy more seriously, one day as a full-time job.

Loves Teddy Hall for…the feeling of community, not just among the students but throughout the college, with staff, students, and fellows alike.
