Program Information

Alumni volunteers assist the Undergraduate Admissions Office by sharing their Penn State experiences during prospective and accepted student recruitment activities.

Admissions Alumni Volunteer Program

Alumni admissions volunteers from across the country assist the Undergraduate Admissions Office in recruiting qualified students for Penn State. Our alumni volunteers are important to the student recruitment process. It is the "personal touch" by alumni volunteers that often encourages students and families to become part of Penn State.

Staying Current with Penn State

To be an effective alumni volunteer, staying current on Penn State and the admissions process is essential.

With a University as big and complex as Penn State, new and exciting things are happening daily, and we want to make sure you have all the tools you need to communicate and engage with prospective students and their families.

Below, you will find many essential resources that are helpful in answering students’ most common questions about Penn State. These resources will provide you with the most up-to-date information about Penn State and should be reviewed prior to participation in one of our volunteer opportunities. Plus, they are a great way to understand what’s going on at Penn State right now!

Penn State Resource Listings

Below is a list of websites for you to refer prospective and admitted students. Feel free to peruse these websites to learn more about how Penn State has changed since you were a student. For current volunteers, we encourage you to use these websites in tandem with your training binder, which houses the most up-to-date information specific to the volunteer program.
