Alumni Admissions Ambassadors
You are Proof of Purchase.
You’ve experienced how this campus pulses with creative energy, clever ideas, and minds wide open. Share your enthusiasm by helping prospective students understand why Purchase provides a college experience like no other.
Our Best Spokespeople
Our Admissions Ambassadors Program taps into your enthusiasm, knowledge, and success as graduates to attract outstanding students to the College.
The college search process can be daunting, yet alumni interaction can make all the difference. Prospective students and parents alike can benefit from speaking with a trustworthy source who knows first-hand what it’s like to attend Purchase and who can bring to life what can’t be learned from printed materials, social media, or the website.
Our alumni aren’t just knowledgeable about the school, they are proof of what students can achieve while attending Purchase and after.
There’s a reason we use the hash tag #ProofofPurchase when we share alumni stories and spread your news—you prove every day how to set the Purchase experience in motion, doing amazing things all over the world at any given moment.
Three Ways to Get Involved
1. Represent Purchase at Virtual College Fairs
College fairs were traditionally late fall and early spring events with a sea of tables in a high school gym or cafeteria and representatives from colleges and universities talking informally to circulating students and their parents, distributing materials, and collecting the names of interested prospects. Now, many fairs are hosted virtually via online platforms.
Purchase College is invited to attend hundreds of programs each year, but our staff is unable to attend every event. That’s where you come in …
Volunteer to represent your alma mater at a college fair or admissions event (whether virtual or in-person) in your area. We’ll provide you with training and resources, and will walk you through the process to ensure all of your questions are answered and you know what to expect. Your voice as an alum will lend authenticity to our messages.
We are particularly interested in expanding our presence in the areas shown below:
Los Angeles, Orange County, Ventura, Alameda, Santa Clara, Riverside, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Sonoma
Miami-Dade, Broward County, Duval, Orange, Hillsborough, and Seminole
Cook and Lake

2. Attend Accepted Students Days
Accepted Students Days are held in the spring and enable students who are accepted to Purchase College to visit (or revisit) campus, meet with faculty, administrators, current students, and alumni to learn more about what it’s like to attend the College and what specific opportunities are available to them as students here.
We encourage alumni involvement in these types of events as alumni can provide a unique insight to those considering attending Purchase College.
3. Write a testimonial
The Office of Admissions sends alumni testimonials through email and social media campaigns at various points throughout the year. Simply provide us with a few quick words or sentences about your positive experience as a student, or your success as a result of your Purchase education, and we will distribute them to prospective students or their parents.
