Volunteering: Ways to help AU

There are lots of ways you can help Alfred University to succeed, and one of them is to volunteer your time.

Refer high school students you think would succeed at Alfred University to the Admissions office, 607.871.2115 or email. We have a special “alumni referred” application form that waives the application fee for prospective students you refer.  Or suggest that the students visit our website and fill out an application online.

Prospective students also like to hear from alumni the answers to age-old questions like “What does a ceramic engineer really do?” or “What can I do with a degree in (pick a field!)?” You may also volunteer to host an open house for prospective or accepted students. That’s especially important for students who might not easily be able to visit Alfred. Contact the Admissions office at 607.871.2115 or email.

Alumni and Community Relations
The possibilities are nearly endless. We’re looking for people to help plan Reunions and other alumni events; host fellow alumni in their homes, or serve on the Alumni Council. Contact the Alumni and Community Relations Office to see how you can help AU. Call 607.871.2144 or email.

Alumni publications
Interested in collecting and writing class notes? Contact the Office of Communications if you want to volunteer as a class correspondent.  We’re also always looking for good story ideas. If you have one, let us know! 607.871.2103 or email.
