Alumni Volunteers needed at College Fairs

Throughout the year, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions receives invitations to attend various college fairs across the state of Illinois. A college fair is a program in which many colleges and universities are grouped together to allow perspective students to conveniently obtain information from an array of institutions in a short amount of time.

The Alumni Services and Undergraduate Admissions Offices are looking for volunteers to help recruit the best and brightest students to EIU! We’re looking for enthusiastic, articulate alumni to help represent EIU at upcoming fall and spring college fairs taking place throughout the state of Illinois.

Information you need to know and what to expect:
Before the Fair

Brush up on your EIU knowledge! Check out and the Alumni Ambassadors presentation below for quick and up-to-date information.
Approximately two-three weeks prior to the fair you will receive a volunteer informational packet via U.S. mail (courtesy of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.)
One week prior to the fair you will be contacted by an admissions counselor via phone to confirm your attendance and to answer any last-minute questions you may have.
