Become a Student or Alumni Volunteer
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. If you are interested in becoming a tour guide, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.
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.
