Alumni Admission Panels

Thank you for your interest in being on an alumni panel at one (or more) Admission Yield event.  Each panel will ideally be a representative sampling of alumni, balanced in gender, major, graduation year, current profession, location, and race/ethnicity.  You will be contacted by the Office of Admission to confirm your participation on the panel(s) for which you have indicated your availability.

These on-campus events for admitted students are held four times each year.  Each event features (among other topics such as the First Year Experience and the K-Plan), an alumni panel comprised of 4-5 alums, speaking about how their Kalamazoo College education prepared them for life after college. Panelists will also be asked to participate in a “Passions to Professions” lunch for current Kalamazoo College students, hosted by K’s Center for Career and Professional Development.  Panelists will arrive on campus at 11:30am; panels will conclude at 3:30pm. Travel subsidies are available through the Admission Office should panelists need assistance getting to campus.

Swarm Events

These events are a collaboration between the Office of Admission and the Office of Alumni Relations.  Each spring, K staff members (plus faculty and coaches) “swarm” targeted cities in and out of Michigan to celebrate with admitted students on their home turf.  The events feature an alumni panel with 2-3 panelists followed by roundtable discussions between K alums and prospective K students (and their families) about the K-Plan.  These “K-Planner Sessions” will be facilitated by Admission staff; training webinars will be available before the events (February 25 at 10am and 3pm and February 27 at 11am).
