Alumni Admission Program

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Colgate University’s global admission effort. Every year, volunteers around the world support the efforts of Colgate to attract the highest caliber students.

The Office of Admission is grateful for the alumni dedication as it broadens our reach. As an alumni ambassador, you will play a unique role in the recruitment process. Having been a student here, you are able to convey the essence of Colgate: the place, the education, and the people.

The Alumni Admission Program (AAP) capitalizes on the enthusiasm of our alumni and creates important connections for prospective students. The chance to talk with a graduate is the chance for prospective students to hear the real story about Colgate.

AAP members volunteer as representatives at college fairs, by conducting informational interviews, and by helping with area receptions for prospective and accepted students. Members of the AAP serve as primary resources for prospective students.

In addition to serving an important role in Colgate's recruitment efforts, members of the AAP are connected to Colgate in new and exciting ways. For some, it is the opportunity to serve the alumni body in a leadership role; for others it offers occasions to connect with fellow graduates; and for all volunteers, the AAP is a way to learn about developments on Colgate's campus.
