Ithaca College's alumni admission volunteers are a community of active, well-informed alumni who serve as representatives of Ithaca College to prospective students. Volunteers participate in a variety of recruiting activities in their communities, helping the IC professional admission staff to identify and attract top high school students to the College. The program provides a forum for enthusiastic Ithaca alumni to share their knowledge and experience with local students. Volunteers also foster meaningful contact between prospective students and the College.
As official representatives of the College, members of the alumni admission program promote Ithaca as successful graduates with insight and passion for the Ithaca experience. Volunteers typically devote 12 hours each fall and spring to recruitment activities, though individual involvement can be as comprehensive as a volunteer's interest and schedule allows.
Network of Support
The admission office provides all the tools to be a successful ambassador of the College. Volunteers receive an array of training and support materials, including course catalogs, the College prospectus, school brochures, contact lists, phone scripts, and other project-specific information. In addition, volunteers receive a source book containing detailed information on program requirements, the admission process, and campus life. Volunteers also receive regular College news updates through online newsletters and frequent e-mails, as well as through the College's website.
