College Fairs

Do you want to create or increase awareness of the University of Rochester in your hometown? Work with us as we expand our outreach efforts to prospective students, parents, and high school guidance counselors across the country. One of the most beneficial and fun ways to do this is to represent Rochester at your local college fairs.

Think you have to know everything about the University in order to staff a fair? Not so! All that's required of you is a few hours of your time, and your enthusiasm for Rochester - we'll provide the rest. College fairs are typically a first point of contact, so questions are usually general and the handout materials we will provide are in high demand (and address most questions). We know - easy for us to say, right? Well, check out what some of your fellow alumni volunteers have to say about staffing college fairs:
