Student Organizations Pitch In to Help the Office of Alumni Relations and Development
Web Editor - Published: March 8, 2012


Several student organizations have recently taken part in an alumni phonathon in an effort to reach out to Widener Law alumni on behalf of the Widener Law Fund.

“One of the reason we do this is to increase participation in the Widener Law Fund. We found it’s an effective way to connect the students with the alumni. It also helps the students understand how important it is to give back,” said Peter Castagna, Assistant Director for the Widener Law Fund.

Several student organizations have participated so far, including the Food and Drug Law Association, the Intellectual Property Society, and Phi Alpha Delta. During the Intellectual Property Society’s scheduled session, the students met and spoke with Joan T. Kluger ’92, the managing partner of Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP’s Delaware Office and co-chair of Schnader’s Intellectual Property Practice Group.

In the accompanying video, first-year law student Lindsey Thomas of Phi Alpha Delta talks about the importance of giving back to the Widener Law Fund and why she chose to participate in the phonathon.

Additional sessions are being scheduled for March, and the student organization that is most successful will receive six tickets to the Philadelphia Alumni Reception scheduled for March 28th.
