Whether you’re 50 miles from Durham or 5,000, wear UNH gear in public and chances are good that at some point, someone will approach you with a smile and the news that he or she, too, is a Wildcat. It’s a testament to how much UNH alumni all across the United States — and beyond — love their alma mater, and how eager they are to connect over shared experiences.
When it comes to attracting the next generation of Wildcats, alumni are the university’s best ambassadors. This year, the office of admissions has developed a new program to engage more alumni in its recruitment efforts, particularly as UNH intensifies its efforts in key markets including Colorado, Seattle, southern Florida, southern California and the San Francisco Bay area.
“Our alumni represent our most compelling case for UNH,” says Victoria Dutcher, vice president for enrollment management. “They’re successful, they’re passionate about their university, and the personal connections they make with prospective students and their parents really have power in showing applicants that UNH is a place where they can see themselves.”
Recruit a Future Wildcat!
- Talk to high school students and parents in your neighborhood about your experience at UNH.
- Especially if you are a teacher or school counselor or serve on a school board, make sure your school knows about UNH.
- Wear your UNH gear proudly whenever you are at a public event with high school students and their parents!
Do you live in Colorado, Seattle, southern Florida, southern California or San Francisco? We’d particularly love to hear from you. Contact alumni ambassador program coordinator Josh Kellogg at email@example.com, or sign up online at admissions.unh.edu/alumni-volunteer-program.
