THE BEST AMBASSADORS for University of Sciences are our alumni. When you speak about your experiences here and how this foundation supported your future success, you are providing a more compelling introduction to USciences than any website or brochure.
We provide training for all alumni who would like to join the Support Team of Alumni Representatives, or STAR, program, and we work with you to find opportunities for you to reach out on behalf of USciences. Some examples include:
Be a STAR at a College Fair.
Representing USciences at a college fair as an alumnus is a very valuable service to the Admission Office. Sharing your experiences brings life to the information they read in our printed materials. You will be the "face" of the University and help answer prospective students' questions.
Be a STAR on the phone.
At various times of the year, the Admission Office organizes calling campaigns. Alumni are great people to call new students to congratulate them on their recent acceptance, for instance. Students and parents appreciate the opportunity to speak with someone intimately familiar with the USciences experience.
Be a STAR at on-campus events.
The Admission Office hosts several recruitment events on campus each year. Alumni paint a great picture for prospective students. They show what a USciences education brings within reach. Whether it's help with Guest Check-In or speaking on a parents/alumni panel, each connection between alumni and prospective students is valuable.
Be a STAR at off-campus events.
In the coming year, the Admission Office will be hosting off-campus events ─ information sessions and receptions ─ for students, parents and guidance counselors. These events will be held outside Philadelphia in order to bring the University closer to students for whom a trip to campus is more burdensome.
