The 10 Stages of a Typical Calling Session (in Snapchat Filters) – Polly Thompson

For the uninitiated, Snapchat is an app that allows you to send pictures to your friends, often with captions attached or weird filters applied. The pictures are deleted by the app after 10 seconds, so you can be sure that whatever embarrassing photos you send to your friends will never be seen again…unless they manage to screenshot them. It’s a talent in which many of us have become quite proficient.

So here is an honest insight into the lives of the Telephone Campaign team through the medium of Snapchat screenshots.

  1. When the team assembles in Ramsey for pre-session brunch

Calling has had its ups and downs, but getting involved in the Telephone Campaign has been a lot of fun. It’s been great getting to know more members of the College community, past and present, and hearing about their time here. As a third year about to graduate, it’s also reassuring to hear how big a part College still plays in people’s lives years after they left. I’m looking forward to receiving a call in a few years’ time!
