The following activities are all ways in which alumni can get involved in the admission process. When you become a member, you can select any or all of the activities that sound interesting to you, recognizing that you are not bound to do anything that doesn’t fit with your schedule!
Recommend a Future K Student
Ensure that a student you know is receiving information on applying to and visiting K. Simply submit this short recommendation form.
Act as an admissions representative for Kalamazoo College at a college fair hosted in your area. The time commitment is minimal — just a couple hours one evening! We’ll ship you a box of materials, and you just have to show up at the fair and share your K experience with prospective students. To learn more, you can download the College Fair Handbook (PDF, 119KB).
See a current list of college fairs needing alumni coverage.
Conversations with Prospective Students
Share your K stories and experiences with prospective students in person, over the phone, and via email or Skype. Students can request to be contacted by an alum to learn more about their K experience. We agree to connect students and alums within 2 weeks of the student request. To learn more, download the Alumni Calling Handbook.
Yield (Admitted Student) Events
Join representatives from the Office of Admission in the spring for a celebration with students admitted to the College and their families. Stay tuned for information about celebrations in your area. If you are interested in discussing the possibility of hosting a celebration, please email email@example.com.
Developing personal relationships with students and their families is an integral part of the admission process at Kalamazoo College. Unfortunately, not all students and families are able to the campus. The Alumni Interview provides an opportunity for you to connect with prospective students personally, creating a connection to Kalamazoo College for prospective students without traveling all the way to Kalamazoo. For more information about Alumni Interviews, download the Alumni Interview Handbook.
Alumni Interviews are offered to high school SENIORS in October and February.
Admission Blog ★ NEW WAY TO HELP ★
Check out our Admission Blog! This blog is designed to engage prospective students with the K experience by sharing stories written mostly by current students (with a few written by the Admission staff about official admission business). We would love to feature a few posts written by alumni that would showcase how your K experience prepared you for life after graduation. If you’d like to write a post, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
