Alumni Ambassador Program Goals

Goals of an Alumni Ambassador

  • Promote the November 1 early action admission deadline and December 15 final admission scholarship deadline. If after that date, remind students about the February 1 final admission deadline, and the May 1 enrollment deposit deadline.

  • Encourage students to visit campus – preferably a personalized visit.

  • Help the admissions and recruitment staff build relationships with students. Pass out OU staff member business cards and encourage students to contact them.

  • Talk about your OU experience as a way to connect and create a vision for the prospective student and their family.

  • Speak in generalities rather than specifics on admission. Refer to the website and publications.

  • Also, If you don’t know the answer, that is okay! You are not expected to memorize every detail. Simply tell them “I’m an alum/parent/volunteer. Please contact (admission counselor name) with that question” and give them our business card OR write down their contact info and question and pass it to one of us.
