Alumni Recruitment Team (ART)

The Antioch College Alumni Recruitment Team (ART) is a program offered by the Office of Admission & Financial Aid to further strengthens the College's recruitment program. As an alum, you have the opportunity to bring enthusiasm, experience, and your unique perspective to a new generation of prospective Antioch College students. Any investment of your time is a significant contribution and adds to the successful future of Antioch College and will be greatly appreciated by new students, future alums, their families, and your alma mater.

Ways to Help

ART offers a variety of options for its volunteers, depending on different interests and available time.  These options include:

  • Alumni Referral Initiative (ARI)
    The easiest way to help! The Admission Office is constantly looking for prospective Antioch College students, and alumni understand what makes an Antiochian better than anyone! You've experienced the rigor of our academic programs, our commitment to experiential learning through co-op, and the value of community and shared governance on campus. Whether it is simply spreading the word to high school or community college students you know, or "influencers" (like parents, teachers, counselors, etc.), or referring a specific student via our ARI referral form, you can help identify students who will thrive at Antioch. Learn more about ARI.

  • Attend College Fairs
    Antioch College receives many invitations to college fairs throughout the year. Unfortunately, the admission staff cannot be present at all of these fairs. Alumni can help by representing Antioch College at college fairs that the admission staff is unable to attend. College fairs are normally held during the fall (September through November) and also during the spring (March through May). If interested, Antioch College alums are also more than welcome to join the admission representative at fairs held in your local communities.  Be assured that we will adequately prepare you for this task and know that this is a valuable contribution to the continued success of Antioch College.

  • Adopt a high school
    ART volunteers who have strong connections to their local high schools can assist by being a liaison between those high schools and Antioch College. Activities would include visiting the high school(s) to update recruitment materials and meet with prospective students, guidance counselors, teachers, and parents.

  • Phone Calls, E-mails, and Personal Notes
    Alumni can communicate with prospective students and their families throughout the admission process. Alumni can write e-mails, personal notes, or make phone calls to prospective students who have similar academic and career interests, who have been accepted to Antioch College, or who they met at a college fair. This activity adds a personal touch during the admission process and can also occur throughout the year.

  • Other Alumni Recruitment Team Opportunities
    As the Alumni Recruitment Team efforts expand, please check back with the admission office to learn about other exciting opportunities to help your alma mater! Some potential future projects may include work with scholarship dinners and regional accepted student receptions.
