Q: What is the Alumni Schools Committee?

Q: What do you do as an ASC volunteer?

A: Volunteers primarily conduct prospective student interviews, in addition to attending local college fairs and admissions events.

Q: What is the time commitment?

A: Volunteering is very flexible, you can do it on your own schedule! The average number of interviews completed by a volunteer is three per cycle, but you may conduct as few as one or as many as 10 (or more) if you so choose. Alumni Interviews take place October through February, while college fairs mainly occur during nights and weekends in the fall and spring.
