Become a Wesleyan Alumni Admission Volunteer!

Congratulations—you will soon be a Wesleyan alum! As you prepare for your departure from campus, I want to invite you to become an ambassador for Wesleyan and join the ranks of WAAV (Wesleyan Alumni Admission Volunteers). WAAV activities include representing Wesleyan at local college fairs, conducting interviews with prospective students, attending admission receptions, and acting as a local contact for interested prospective students and their families. What better way to keep your positive memories of Wesleyan alive than by making a contribution to the next generation of Wesleyan students?  

The primary activities for WAAV are representing Wesleyan at college fairs around the country and abroad and conducting interviews with prospective students. For the alumni interview process, prospective students request an alumni interview via our website. Each WAAV member has an alumni portal where they can view any students who have requested interviews, as well as keep track of those interviews you have “claimed” and completed. The two parties decide on the meeting place and time, and then engage in a conversation that typically lasts around 30-40 minutes. Once the interview is completed, the WAAV goes to their portal and submits an evaluation for that interviewee. 

Alumni support in the admission process is a critical component in our efforts to attract the strongest candidates from across the country and abroad. Don’t worry if you don’t know where you’ll be permanently next year—just sign up now and you can easily update your address once you’re settled. We look forward to adding members of the Class of 2017 to our community of nearly 700 active admission volunteers! This is a great way to give back to Wesleyan that doesn’t cost you anything but enthusiasm and time. 

If you would like to become a WAAV member, please complete the sign up form at:

 If you have any questions, please visit our WAAV Website or contact me at or Karen O’Leary (WAAV Assistant) at

 Again, congratulations on your upcoming graduation and I wish you a successful transition to the next stage of your life!

 Warmly, Ashleigh

Ashleigh M. Corvi ‘13, Senior Assistant Dean of Admission & Financial Aid
