Help Us Build the Class of 2026

This year, due to COVID-19, Earlham admissions counselors are not able to do their normal traveling to visit high schools and attend college fairs. Now more than ever, the Admissions Office needs you, the alumni volunteers, to be their eyes and ears in your families and local communities to identify and refer high school students to Earlham.

Whether it’s someone you know personally, someone that you believe will fit in well at Earlham, someone interested in collegiate athletics, who is passionate about social justice and being a change maker in the world—we want to hear from you

How it works

This campaign lasts just four weeks and you can be involved as much or as little as your time allows. We will give you all the tools you need to get started. Dust off your detective gear because we require a little research on your end. Chances are good that you have people in your network that know high school students that would excel at Earlham. Connecting with them to gauge their interest and share your college experience can move our college to the top of their list. Each week you will hear from our office about progress and tips for success. Even if you don’t personally know any prospective students, you can still help by sharing this information with friends.

The timeline (October 25 – November 26)

Each week, you will hear from the Alumni Engagement Office about progress and tips for success.
