Alumni from all over the world extend the College's outreach to prospective students. As members of the Camel Alumni Admission Program (CAAP), they conduct admission interviews and welcome admitted students at receptions in their home area.
If you are an alumnus/alumna interested in volunteering, please register using our Alumni Admission Program Form.
Alumni interviews provide an additional means for the admission staff to explore the intangible qualities of prospective candidates, such as their personality, scholarship, intellectual integrity, commitment and curiosity.
As a CAAP interviewer, you will be responsible for:
- contacting students assigned to you
- meeting with your assigned student(s) to discuss their interests
- completing a short written evaluation of the student
Interviewing is a crucial CAAP responsibility that must be done in a timely fashion in order to meet application review deadlines. The Office of Admission receives requests for alumni interviews from Sept. 15 through Dec. 15.
Why not visit the campus?
As a CAAP volunteer, come back to your alma mater and join us for a campus tour and/or information session. In one hour, you'll learn more about what's happening at the College, refresh your memories of what the College has to offer, and be able to share these details with today's smart and savvy prospective students!
Meet the Admission Committee
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 email email@example.com with any questions.
