Alumni and Parent Admissions Program Volunteer Opportunities

College Fairs

Represent Clark by staffing a table at a college fair. You will be speaking with high school students and their parents about Clark and the admissions process. Most fairs are in the evening and last approximately two hours. College fair activity is most robust in the following months: September, October, November, March, April and May.

Alumni Interview Initiative

Alumni interviews are offered proactively to early action and regular decision applicants who submit their application by November 1 and January 1 respectively. Alumni interviews are offered to prospective students by request. The interview offers students the chance to learn how the Clark undergraduate experience can help them meet their college and career goals; alumni feedback is considered as part of the holistic review of a student's application.

Congratulatory Note Card Program

Help the University create a sense of community by welcoming admitted students from your area into the Clark family. Volunteers will be provided with stamped and addressed note cards to send to admitted students congratulating them on their admission to Clark.

High School Liaison Program

Although the primary focus of this program is to drop off updated Admissions materials to local high schools and to establish relationships with guidance counselors, we have received several requests for our volunteers to meet with students. Volunteers willing to meet with students are provided customized training prior to the visit.

Weekends @ Clark

This program includes an information session with an admissions counselor, questions and answers with current students, a guided walk of campus, lunch in the Higgins Café, a sample class experience, and an opportunity to connect with students, alumni and Clark parents. Weekends @ Clark are offered on select dates in September, October, and November.

Host Regional Events

Host a student or APAP event in your home, office, or other public place such as a library or community center. A member of the Admissions staff will join you in presenting comprehensive information about the University to families or APAP volunteers in your area.

Panelist/Host at an On/Off Campus Event

Volunteers are encouraged to consider participating in on-campus and off-campus events including: open houses, scholarship dinners, off campus information sessions, yield events.
