Alumni Admissions Interviews

Interviews are an important piece of the admissions process. With your help, we can have meaningful conversations with more applicants and have a better understanding of who is well-matched and ready to take advantage of the Lawrence experience. It's all about making personal connections, learning about the students beyond the pages of their applications, and bringing the LU experience to life for them. This is a small time commitment with a large return for you, the student, and the Admissions Office... and it's FUN! 

You get to select as few or as many prospective students as you'll have time to connect with. The interviews take place at a location that is mutually convenient for you and the student in your local area. 

Interview prospective students and become an Alumni Ambassador today!

A brief training session is required so we can provide you with all of the tools and resources you'll need to get started. Please choose one interview training session (average length of time is 30-45 minutes). We have a few options so you can choose what works best for you. Events on campus and off, live webinars, and a recorded webinar you can do on your own time. Registration links are highlighted in blue:
