Alumni Ambassadors — What's That?
Remember the excitement of filling out that first college application (and the drudgery of filling out that third one), receiving your acceptance letter, entering your first class, and graduating?
As one of more than 70,000 SIUE alumni, you can help ease SIUE's prospective and newly accepted students through this process. As an Alumni Ambassador, you will be giving back to your alma mater, and giving those students following in your footsteps the benefit of your knowledge, experience, and successes.
The Office of Admissions views Alumni Ambassadors as a valuable resource in promoting SIUE and recruiting a diverse student body while fostering increased alumni involvement in the university.
Thank you for volunteering your valuable time.
Here are some of the ways you might help the Office of Admissions reach out to prospective SIUE students:
What is the time commitment?
That’s up to you. You might spend five minutes on the phone congratulating a newly admitted student, or an evening at a college fair talking to prospective students. We’ll work around your schedule, but we ask that you participate in at least one capacity each year..
Will I receive training and specific information?
Absolutely! Now celebrating its 50th anniversary, SIUE has grown, and grown up, over the years. We’ll bring you up to date and provide you with the knowledge you need.
