Admissions Volunteer Program

The challenge of recruiting talented, well-qualified students who are a good "fit" for Earlham requires input from the whole Earlham community: professors, administrators, current students, alumni, and parents. Earlham College's Admissions Volunteer Program is a network of over 600 parents and alumni worldwide who assist the Admissions Office in its recruitment efforts.

Enthusiastic volunteers are excellent resources for interested students and their families who want to learn more about the characteristics of an Earlham education, student/faculty interaction, campus activities, and career opportunities. Admissions Volunteers serve Earlham College and prospective students in many ways:

  • Refer prospective students to the Admissions Office
  • Deliver information about Earlham to the guidance counselors at the high schools in your area
  • Identify promising college fairs in your area
  • Represent Earlham at area college fairs
  • Conduct interviews with applicants who cannot visit campus
  • Encourage prospective students to apply by writing a letter describing how your experience at Earlham has influenced your life
  • Write career letters to admitted students who have expressed interest in a field relating to your work
  • Attend social gatherings with prospective, admitted, or confirmed students to help them become acquainted with the larger Earlham community
  • Share information about Explore-A-Collegesm, Earlham's college-level summer program for rising 9th, 10th, and 11th grade high school students
  • Increase awareness of the College by wearing E.C. clothing, etc.

Some of these tasks require training and that the volunteer be supplied with information and materials in advance.
