How You Can Get Involved
Training & Support from Us
We're here to assist you with training and support throughout your involvement in the program. Volunteers can watch a one-hour training session with President, Peter T. Mitchell, Alumni Director, Julie King, and Dean of Admissions, Vinnie Maloney. We'll go over what to highlight and techniques for talking to high school students about Columbia College.
Ways to Volunteer
We understand your time is precious, so we've created a number of options for you to help and engage. Choose the engagement opportunity below that aligns with your interests and schedule. Have another idea? Let's connect and discuss it.
Attend College Fairs in Your Region
Attending a college fair event involves greeting students and families at the table assigned to Columbia College, sharing information about the Columbia College experience, answering basic questions, and encouraging students to join our mailing list or apply for admission.
Reach Out to Future Students
Outreach may include sending emails, notes, texts, or calling prospective students to introduce yourself as an alumnus of Columbia College. You can share your Columbia College experience and encourage them to apply, visit, or enroll.
Host or Attend Regional Events (In-person or virtually)
The Office of Admission will hold Columbia College events in cities around the state/southeast. Host or attend one of these events to connect with prospective students in your hometown.
Submit a Headshot and Bio
We highlight our alumni in a number of ways through our marketing materials for Columbia College. We'd love to share your story with our students and prospective students.
Submit a Testimonial Video
Tell the story of how Columbia College helped influence who you've become. Testimonial videos help students envision themselves as part of Columbia College.
