The Nazareth College development team exists to raise awareness and money for the annual fund. I liked that I was able to learn more about development responsibilities as well as set up Nazareth's phonathon.

One piece of advice I would share is people should always ask questions. By asking questions you are able to improve your work and ensure your work is done correctly. Also always be open to other people's opinions.
