Alumni Admissions Representatives Program (AARs)
The Alumni Admissions Program helps maintain our tradition of academic excellence by encouraging academically talented students to apply and attend Shippensburg University. As a member of the AARs Program, you will provide the "personal attention" and
"encouragement" that can make the difference between a student choosing Ship or another institution. Providing your perspective as an alumnus is the most important component to the success of this program, and is an invaluable element that helps the University reach and possibly exceed its
overall undergraduate enrollment goals.
Who are the AARs?
Members of the AAR Program are Ship alumni who have expressed an interest in assisting the Office of Admissions in the recruitment of prospective students. AARs serve their local region and participate in a variety of Opt-in Volunteer recruitment activities
AAR Program Goals
The goals of the program are:
AAR's are asked each year to participate in a variety of recruitment activities. As volunteer opportunities vary, so does the time commitment required for each opportunity. For the program’s success, it is important that all members are trained and made aware of yearly updates.
How can you help?
AARs participate in local and regional recruitment activities such as college fairs and contacting admitted students. AARs are ambassadors for the University who act as local contacts for students, families, and admission counselors. Responsibilities may vary depending on which type of Volunteer Opportunity you participate in. If you are considering becoming an Alumni Admissions Representative, please contact
Assistant Dean of Admissions, Joseph Luna.
