The Office of Admission ended the practice over a dozen years ago of having alumni volunteers interview prospective students. This does not mean, however, that alumni are discouraged from recommending students to apply and writing supporting letters about students they know well. At the moment, volunteer opportunities for alumni are limited. Those who do volunteer typically are asked to attend College Fairs on behalf of Amherst, host Admitted Student Receptions and occasionally interact with admitted students who wish to speak to an alumnus/a.
