Admissions Volunteers

Volunteer for Admissions

Admissions events, particularly college fairs, present a wonderful opportunity for NIU to engage students and families in their respective communities. Due to the nuances of each student’s journey, you will field questions that are general and exploratory, and others that are narrowly-focused and parsing in nature. You may encounter admitted students or students who only recognize NIU by name.

The experience at each college fair can be unique; however, we have the great challenge to meet students and families where they are. Alumni volunteers have the opportunity to talk about NIU, meet students and learn about their interests, and run into other NIU alumni and parents of current or former Huskies.

Don't worry, volunteers are not expected to speak with breadth and depth about academic programs, advising, student services, admissions, or financial aid. This is the focus of our admissions counselors. We take an informative approach to these events, so our focus is on distinguishing NIU, and not comparing ourselves to other institutions. College fairs are truly fun!

Reserve your volunteer slot below, and NIU staff will follow-up with you to share specific details and training information!

If you have any questions, please contact Jeanne Baxter at [email protected] or (815) 753-5062.
