Prospective Ambassadors

Get Involved

Whether you live in a big city on the east coast, in a small mid-west town or somewhere around the world, you can be an Alumni Ambassador.* In many cases, you don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home to participate. The Alumni Ambassadors program is designed to fit your interests and your time availability. Formal and informal training sessions and resources are provided.

As an Alumni Ambassador you have the opportunity to:

  • Visit college fairs in your area, either alone or with a Drexel University admissions counselor.
  • Attend an Admitted Students Day on Drexel's campus.
  • Attend regional receptions in your area. There you can talk one-on-one with high school students and parents who are interested in learning more about Drexel.
  • Drop admissions materials off at local high schools or offer to be a resource for local high school guidance counselors.
  • Volunteer as a contact for Ask a Dragon.

To become an Alumni Ambassador, complete the online form or contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 1.888.DU.GRADS or alumni@drexel.edu.

*There is a special need for alumni volunteers who live in Chicago, Long Island, Florida, and California, and/or are graduates of the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design and the College of Nursing and Health Professions.
