Admission volunteers raise the visibility of Haverford and provide important personal contact that prospective students and their parents hope to find throughout the college search process. Responsibilities of admission volunteers include attending college fairs, interviewing prospective students, and contacting admitted students.
Alumni admission volunteers must be able to agree to the Admission Principles of Good Practice to register as an active admission volunteer. Learn more about volunteering for the Admission Office.

Looking for a fun, low-key way to volunteer for Haverford that doesn’t take much time? We’ve got just the thing for you.
Why not help connect your classmates by becoming a class correspondent for Haverford magazine? Correspondents play an important role in helping to maintain the strong sense of community among Haverford alumni and establishing links with classmates who have lost contact with the College.
Plus, it’s easy. We’ll provide you with an updated list of your classmates’ email addresses so you can send out a call for news. You’ll write three reports per year, gathering the updates you’ve solicited. (We’ll edit for length and style.) There are three deadlines (early September, early January, and late April), which are firm, and which we will send you helpful reminders about. But, if life gets in the way and you have to miss an issue, no problem. We will not badger or shame you. (There is always another magazine coming along.)
What is legitimate class news? Pretty much whatever your classmates want it to be. We love to hear about weddings, moves, trips, hobbies, job or career changes, honors, retirements, new babies (love those adorable pictures!), and get-togethers with fellow Fords. But short, humorous philosophical musings, or brief recaps of where someone is in life these days are welcome as well.
That’s it. Like to give it a try? Contact the editor of Haverford magazine for more information. As always, you can still submit your individual updates online here or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Reunion volunteers work with a committee of classmates to help to plan and execute successful class reunions during Alumni Weekend. Reunion Planning Committee members participate in conference calls, assist with crafting a communications plan for their class, work with Alumni and Parent Relations to plan class events, and contact classmates to encourage attendance at Alumni Weekend. Reunion Giving Committee members work with College staff to set goals for the Class Gift, develop a solicitation plan, and encourage peers to participate by making a gift to the Annual Fund.
