Ways to Volunteer with the AASP

‚ÄčAre you a Trinity alumna/us looking to volunteer your time on behalf of the Admissions Office? There are several ways alumni can get involved with the AASP:

  • Conduct interviews with prospective students

For prospective students who are unable to travel to campus, we offer the opportunity to interview with a local Trinity College alumni. Alumni interviews allow prospective students to discuss issues of personal significance, to make a positive impression in their own words, and to have questions answered by someone who is intimately familiar with the College.  Alumni interviews are evaluative and are taken into consideration during the application process.

  • Attend day and evening college fairs in your area

College fairs provide a large number of prospective students, parents, and college counselors the chance to talk with a college representative locally. Volunteers act as the Trinity College representative at day and/or evening college fairs.  College fair attendees will ask a variety of questions about the College and the Trinity experience.

Some college fairs are presented by one high school or several high schools; some are regional and draw hundreds of students from many different high schools.  For some students, this is their first contact with the College, while others will have already applied. 
  • Make telephone calls and/or send emails
Personal attention is a hallmark of the Trinity community, and the Admissions Office feels that every applicant should have the opportunity to have their questions answered by a College representative.  AASP volunteers may be asked to call or email prospective students, applicants, and admitted students periodically throughout the year.
