As an Albion College alum or a parent of a current Albion student (or both!), you can play a special role in the work of the Admission Office.

Your connection to Albion already runs deep, and one of the best ways to show it is by reaching out to the next class of Albion students and their families. Your perspective and passion can make a profound difference in a student's decision to choose Albion.

You can make an impact in a number of ways:

  • Refer a prospective student

  • Host a prospective student event at your home or in your area.

  • Represent Albion at a local college fair.

  • Attend a recruitment event in your area to meet and encourage prospective students and families.

  • Offer helpful information about local high schools and community programs to your area's admission counselor.

  • Provide personal outreach via a phone call or email to admitted students in your area.

Are you in? We hope so! Get things started by completing our volunteer form below , and an Admission Office representative will be in touch with you promptly. If you have questions about the program, call the Admission Office at 800/858-6770.

We look forward to hearing from—and working with—you!
