Become a Student or Alumni Volunteer

Current Students

Northwestern undergraduates are an invaluable resource to the Office of Undergraduate Admission. There are a number of ways you can share your Northwestern experience with prospective students as we work together to recruit the next class of incoming students.

  • Tour Guides - Tour guides share their enthusiasm for Northwestern and broad knowledge of our campus by leading campus tours for visiting students and their families. The 2014-15 NU Tour Guide application is now available. In addition to submitting the application, you must also fill out this form. All application components must be submitted by 5pm on Friday, April 11. Applicants who are selected for an interview will be notified by the last week of April; interviews will take place May 5-9. If you have any questions, feel free to contact NUTourGuideApplication@gmail.com.

  • The Student Admission Council - The Student Admission Council (SAC) is a volunteer organization comprised of enthusiastic Northwestern undergraduates who assist in a variety of key recruitment activities. SAC volunteers serve on student panels, help with on-campus programs, host prospective students overnight, and take part in admitted-student phoneathons. To become a SAC volunteer, please fill out this form. If you have additional questions, please email ug-sac@u.northwestern.edu.

  • Clave and Ambassadors - The Office of Undergraduate Admission utilizes several student groups in its efforts to build relationships with prospective students. CLAVE is a network of Latino student volunteers who contact prospective Latino students interested in Northwestern. Ambassadors promote the University to prospective students by assisting in the recruitment, correspondence, and orientation of African American students to Northwestern. Volunteers from both groups participate in activities ranging from hosting prospective students, participating in on-campus programs, and phoneathons.

Northwestern Alumni

Alumni are welcome and invited to share their Northwestern experience with prospective students by volunteering with their local Alumni Admission Council (AAC). AAC volunteers represent Northwestern at college fairs throughout the year and conduct admission interviews. If you would like to join your area AAC, contact us at: AAC@u.northwestern.edu.
