Three Ways to be an Alumni Admissions Volunteer

College Fairs

College Fairs are held all over the country to give college and university representatives an opportunity to speak with high school students and families.

Since admissions staff can't attend all of these events, as an Alumni Admissions Volunteer you can represent Bucknell at a nearby event.

Your Responsibilities

  • Your role would be to attend a fair that is close to your home and staff a table to speak to high school students who may be interested in Bucknell.

Regional Admissions Activities

Bucknell's admissions office hosts regional receptions for prospective students and their families in the fall and spring semesters.

As a Bucknell graduate, your involvement brings richness and immediacy to the messaging from the admissions office. Alumni can provide stories and sentiments about Bucknell that are unique and meaningful.

Your Responsibilities

  • Alumni Admissions Volunteers help staff these events as greeters or panelists, depending on the format for the evening.

Refer and Recommend!

We ask our volunteers to always be on the lookout for outstanding students in their area. If you know or recently met an excellent student in your community, please use this opportunity to assist in our admissions recruitment efforts!

Your Responsibilities

  • Refer the student to Bucknell by sharing your excellent college experience and suggesting that the student research and visit Bucknell.
  • If you are so inclined, you may also recommend a student to the admissions office. Your thoughts and impressions of the student will be included in the student's application file and will be very helpful to our staff in the evaluation process.
