Become an ASC Volunteer
We welcome alumni who are enthusiastic about their UChicago experience and who look to share their enthusiasm with prospective students and their families. ASC volunteers are invaluable assets because they help students and families appreciate all that UChicago offers its undergraduate—a rich set of academic, research, extracurricular, social, athletic, and artistic experiences. Through their service, ASC volunteers help to shape the future of the University of Chicago by extending our reach and spreading awareness about the distinctive and transformative undergraduate education offered by the College.
What do ASC volunteers do?
ASC volunteers represent the Office of College Admissions in their communities by conducting prospective student interviews and serve as ambassadors of the Admissions Office by attending college fairs and supporting information sessions and other yield-related events.
Why is the ASC important?
Interactions that prospective students have with alumni volunteers are incredibly important to their college search process. Many students are unable to come to campus before they apply, so their meetings with volunteers may be their only face-to-face interaction with a representative of the university. No matter what the interaction, volunteers should be helpful, informative, and friendly.
What happens after I register?
The ASC is organized into regional territories that roughly match our recruitment territories. Each ASC region is overseen by a local volunteer leader, or “Chair,” whose role it is to coordinate the admissions recruiting or yield-related activity of the volunteers. Volunteers will be called upon by their chairs to interview prospective students, attend college fairs, and help support other admissions events.
