Camel Alumni Admission Program
Alumni from all over the world extend the College's outreach to prospective students.
They conduct admission interviews, represent the College at college fairs, and welcome admitted students at receptions in their home area.
Alumni play a crucial role in shaping future classes, often providing a student's first and most persuasive contact. The experiences and stories of Connecticut College graduates enable prospective students and their families to hear first-hand about the social, academic, and residential opportunities at the College and often personalize the admission process.
Alumni reps initiate a friendly and free-ranging conversation that helps alumni and admission staff see if a prospective student has the intellectual curiosity, depth, an open mind, and a desire to engage both in class and on campus.
Demand for interviews changes each year. Some alumni are contacted several times, while some may not receive an interview request each year. Either way, alumni only pledge to volunteer as much time as they feel they can. We enroll our volunteers each August to help work with the following year's freshman class.
Get more details about this year's CAAP program on the Admission website. To apply, go to http://www.conncoll.edu/camelweb/public/CAAP_form.cfm.
In addition to working with the CAAP Coordinator, as a CAAP volunteer you are encouraged to engage with the Admission counselor who reads applications from your area. This counselor will be most informed about the high schools and communities from which you will be meeting prospective students.
Thanks again for volunteering to help draw the best students to Conn. Please contact Cynthia Goheen at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
