Alumni Admissions Ambassador Program
Choosing the right university is one of the most difficult decisions anyone can make.
At NDU, alumni can take action to help with this important decision.
A collaboration between the Office of Admissions & OTME and the Alumni Affairs Office, this newly organized program aims to engage well-trained, knowledgeable and keen alumni as active participants in the university’s recruitment effort.
As Notre Dame University continues to grow, alumni-admissions ambassadors will extend the reach of traditional admissions programs in their communities. Alumni Admission representatives provide a strong and important link between NDU and prospective students and their families, by sharing personal, positive NDU experiences and stories of subsequent successes, ambassadors encourage increased enrollment from national, regional and international high school students. The Office of Admissions provides training materials for new ambassadors through a variety of resources.
About the Program
NDU Alumni Affairs Office is recruiting alumni to attend university fairs in different areas, providing the first of many opportunities for involvement that will be offered to our volunteers as our program will continue to grow.
The program has two goals: One, to extend the geographical reach of the Office of Admissions and second, to give alumni an opportunity to serve their university as they can.
NDU Alumni Admission Ambassadors would help Admissions officers to advise students on becoming potential NDU students. Admissions Ambassadors will possibly attend admission events; be able to communicate with admitted students and speak on the academic and non-academic qualities of NDU; participate as speakers on behalf of the campus, and attend open houses both on and off-campus.
Become an Alumni Ambassador
Through their volunteer efforts, Alumni Ambassadors take their NDU experience to the communities in which they now live and work. Ambassadors assist the Admissions Office with the following: National Admissions fairs, Open Doors, In –House Orientation program, High School Visits, Regional Admissions Forum, and NDU Educator. Alumni Ambassadors receive a training kit (NDU Fact Sheets, Directories, FAQs, etc.) by mail with practically everything necessary to help them feel comfortable in their conversations with students.
National Admissions fairs - By volunteering to attend an admission fair, the ambassador helps NDU’s recruitment efforts immensely. Admissions fairs attract many students not only from Beirut where the fair takes place, but from all over Lebanon. By attending these fairs, you are helping to spread NDU’s name across the country.
Open Doors - Organized by the Admissions Office, in collaboration with the SAO, a major annual event is the NDU Open Doors event specifically created to allow prospective students to experience the full vibrancy of NDU’s student life.
High School Visits - NDU visits schools all over Lebanon and the region on a yearly basis to inform their students of the opportunities available to them at our university. As admission officers move throughout the country, they seek meetings with high school principals or counselors. By joining the High School Visit Team, the ambassador will take on this same responsibility. The ambassador may have a connection (a friend employed at a school, a child attending a school, etc.) with a school in his/her area, or even if he doesn’t, he/she may schedule an appointment to visit that school’s guidance office and drop off some material about NDU.
NDU Educator - As an employee in a school, the Alumni ambassador have the unique opportunity to integrate NDU into his/her students’ everyday lives. By doing this, he/she can help NDU gain access to more groups of bright students in more places around the country. Not to mention, the Alumni Ambassador get to share memories about your time at NDU!
