Opportunities for Involvement
Participating in College Night Programs/College Fairs
Alumni and Parent Admission Recruitment Team Members have the opportunity to represent BW at area college night programs/college fairs in the fall and spring of each school year. College fairs are typically large programs with representatives from many colleges and universities. Each college has its own table/area to meet with interested students who have questions or are looking to pick up information on the college. This type of program brings hundreds of new prospective students to BW each year. To learn more click here.
Alumni and Parent Calling Nights and Contact Program
APART members may call, write, or e-mail admitted students from your area. Often we find that alumni have or create a personal connection with a prospective student impacting their college decision and ultimately their future. To learn more click here.
Conducting Personal Interviews
Local students in your area may request personal interviews off campus. Interviews allow alumni and parents to become invested in the admission process by meeting and connecting with individuals who may become the next generation of BW alumni. The young people who request alumni interviews are keen on making a good impression. The impression you make on them and how you promote the College are equally important. To learn more click here.
The admissions office holds open house programs in the fall and summer for prospective students and families. These programs include general sessions on admission and aid, academic department open houses and tours. Volunteers can serve on panels, have lunch with prospective families or mingle during registration. To learn more click here.
You can host or staff prospective and/or accepted student receptions. These receptions can be held in volunteer’s homes and are informal by design. To learn more click here.
