Alumni Ambassador Program

The D’Youville University Alumni Ambassador Program consists of a group of alumni volunteers around the world who serve as enthusiastic ambassadors to prospective students, families, and schools both nationally and internationally. 

Alumni Ambassadors not only share their experiences and information about D’Youville, but they also help personalize the admissions process and make D’Youville more accessible to thousands of candidates each year. By joining this program, you will play a vital role in fostering a sense of belonging, enhancing the admissions process, and nurturing a strong network among our alumni and prospective students.

Volunteer Opportunities

Assist the undergraduate & graduate admissions team, faculty and staff as they welcome our students at one or more of our open houses. Open Houses typically occur 5 times per year. Volunteers are needed to welcome guests as they arrive, answer questions about the day’s agenda, and engage in conversations with prospective students and their families..

Serve as an alumni representative at in person or virtual information sessions. Information sessions typically involve a formal presentation of one or more academic programs. Topics covered may include program specific information and requirements, admission requirements, and Q&A’s. Alumni Ambassadors may volunteer their time to speak with a small group of prospective students about their experience as a D’Youville student.

College Fairs are great recruiting opportunities that introduce high school students to many different colleges. One or more high schools in an area may sponsor a day or evening program and invite selected colleges to meet with students and their families..

D’Youville University’s Admissions Office receives many invitations to college fairs locally and nationally each year for our staff to attend. As college fair representatives, alumni ambassadors talk with students and their families as well as represent D’Youville University by handing out admissions publications, fielding basic questions and sharing their own personal D’Youville experiences.

Additional information and materials will be provided to ambassadors to properly prepare for these events.
