Are you a recent graduate or a not-so-recent graduate? Consider becoming an Alumni Admissions Volunteer and meet and greet local prospective students. Becoming an Alumni Admissions Volunteer is a great way to stay connected to PennState. Admission Volunteers attend college fairs at local high schools and informational sessions for newly accepted and potential students. At these events the volunteer answers students questions regarding life at Penn State, share their experiences, and gives advice The Undergraduate Admissions Office gives brochures to distribute to students.

There is also a program called LionsROAR (Reaching Out and Recruiting) in which volunteers call newly accepted students to say congratulations on being accepted to Penn State. The students may ask the volunteer some questions regarding PennState at this time as well.

Penn State really welcomes their Admission Volunteers living in Florida. Since the university is so far away, a person from Penn State is unable to attend a local event. A volunteer currently living in the area can represent the school even when a representative from the school is at the event. It helps to have a Floridian add additional information to their presentation.

Please volunteer.

For more information and to sign up to be a volunteer contact Dave Chavira,  Assistant Director for Recruitment directly at Phone: 814-865-5471 or E-Mail:
