Recruit New Ambrosians

pennant and postcards

You loved St. Ambrose when you were here. Now is your chance to tell prospective students why!

The offices of Admissions and Alumni are teaming up to train alumni in recruiting new Ambrosians. It's a great chance to give back to SAU (that doesn't involve your checkbook!).

If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please contact Danielle Spengler, Coordinator of Volunteer Engagement.

College Fairs

Volunteers needed now! Alumni across the country can help recruit students by representing SAU at their local college fairs. Most fairs will also be staffed by an Admissions Representative. Only a handful are staffed soley by alumni, but don't worry, we will give you the tools you need to be successful! If you are able to help at any of these fairs or have further questions, please contact Danielle Spengler, Coordinator of Volunteer Engagement. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see this year's fair locations!

Recruit at the Boylan High School Football Game!

Our Admissions team is looking for alumni volunteers to help them recruit students at the Boylan High School Football game (in Rockford, IL) on Friday October 20th. This is very similar to a college fair except SAU will be the only college there! For more details, please contact Danielle Spengler.

SAUinCHI Student Events

This is an informational and fun event for Chicago-area high school students who want to learn more about SAU. During the event, a panel of SAU faculty, staff, and alumni (this is where you come in) answer questions from prospective students and their families. Don't worry – we will prep you if you volunteer to be a panelist! Fall date is set for Thursday, November 16, 2017 in Northlake, IL. Please contact Danielle Spengler if you are interested in being on the panel!

Admitted Student Receptions

These are hosted by alumni in key recruiting regions for admitted students and their families to meet each other and connect with the SAU community. We look for alumni to join us at these events – typically held in March – to share their experience and help promote St. Ambrose in an honest and positive way. 2018 dates and details coming soon!

Summer Send-offs

This is an opportunity for enrolled students and their families to meet others from their hometown before coming to SAU in the fall. We look for alumni to join us at these events to welcome parents and students to the SAU family! These are hosted by alumni in key recruiting regions and typically held in August. 2018 dates coming soon!

Postcards to Accepted Students

From October through March we need alumni volunteers to write to prospective students and congratulate them on their acceptance to SAU. It's a great way to make a difference from the comfort of your own home, and we'll send you all the supplies! If you're interested, complete this short online form and we will get you started!
