Help Us Close the Class of 2025
As a result of last year’s efforts, an additional 70 students committed to Earlham College because of alumni volunteer efforts.
Help again this year by confirming the next incoming class. Whether you graduated recently or more than 50 years ago, you are part of a unique group. Sharing your experiences and the love you have for your alma mater can make all the difference of a student committing to the college.
How it works
Volunteers will reach out to accepted students through phone calls, emails and/or social media to make a personal connection, congratulate them on their admission to Earlham, and encourage them to consider Earlham as their home for the next four years. We will provide manageable contact lists and include a script and FAQs to help guide the communication. An online feedback form will be provided to record notes from the interaction (if relevant), this will help the admissions office know what steps remain to help the accepted student.
The timeline – March 2021
Each week, you will hear from the Alumni Engagement Office about progress and tips for success. Additionally, we will have an EC Connect Group, where volunteers can drop by to ask any questions.
To sign up for this initiative, email Michelle King at [email protected].
