Become a Student or Alumni Volunteer

Current Students

Northwestern undergraduates are an invaluable resource to the Office of Undergraduate Admission. There are a number of ways you can share your Northwestern experience with prospective students as we work together to recruit the next class of incoming students.

  • Tour Guides - Tour guides share their enthusiasm for Northwestern and broad knowledge of our campus by leading campus tours for visiting students and their families. The 2016-17 NU Tour Guide application will become available in the spring of 2016. For any additional questions, please email Mariana Ramirez at mramirez@northwestern.edu.

  • Senior Admission Counselors - Senior Counselors are professional members of the Undergraduate Admission Office who work to build and maintain relationships with prospective students and their families. Headquartered in the Segal Visitor Center, this position gives NU seniors the opportunity to assist prospective students through the application process via emails, phone calls, and information sessions. The 2016-17 Senior Counselor application will become available in the spring of 2016. Additionally, mid-year opportunities for NU juniors may arise so feel free to be in touch. If you have additional questions, please email andrea.werly@northwestern.edu.

  • The Student Admission Council - The Student Admission Council (SAC) is a volunteer organization comprised of enthusiastic Northwestern undergraduates who assist in a variety of key recruitment activities. SAC volunteers serve on student panels, help with on-campus programs, host prospective students overnight, and take part in admitted-student phoneathons.

  • Clave and Ambassadors - The Office of Undergraduate Admission utilizes several student groups in its efforts to build relationships with prospective students. CLAVE is a network of Latino student volunteers who contact prospective Latino students interested in Northwestern. Ambassadors promote the University to prospective students by assisting in the recruitment, correspondence, and orientation of African American students to Northwestern. Volunteers from both groups participate in activities ranging from hosting prospective students, participating in on-campus programs, and phoneathons.

Northwestern Alumni

Alumni are welcome and invited to share their Northwestern experience with prospective students by volunteering with their local Alumni Admission Council (AAC). AAC volunteers represent Northwestern at college fairs throughout the year and conduct admission interviews. If you would like to join your area AAC, contact us at: AAC@u.northwestern.edu.
