Admission Alumni Representatives (AARs) around the world help the Office of Admission increase Reed College's visibility and reach. Reed alumni have experienced Reed's uniqueness first-hand and can help admission share our love of Reed with prospective students. By providing information about Reed to interested prospective students and by providing the admission staff with additional information about our applicants, alumni interviewers can be an important part of a student's experience of the application process. This program augments the efforts of Reed's admission staff while providing alumni with a meaningful and productive way to help their alma mater.
The Office of Admission looks to have a pool of capable and excited alumni volunteers to call upon when needed. The majority of volunteer activities are interviewing prospective students or attending college fairs.
