Greeted with smiles, work at McMurry is definitely a family environment. They trained us to be able to handle all situations and how to interact with alumni of all ages. I would come to work and start calling whichever list of alumni was chosen that day. I would call to update alumni information, inform them of events at the university, and give them the opportunity to financially support the university. Our managers were right there the whole time to support us. Co-workers during break were always laughing, having fun, and enjoying each other's company. We were a diverse group but it worked. The hardest part of the job was dealing with alumni that were displeased with the fact that McMurry changed their mascot from Indians to Warhawks. The most enjoyable part of the job was hearing all the stories and McMurry experiences, especially from alumni who lived during World Wars I and II.
