Tufts Alumni Admissions Program
The network of Tufts Alumni Admissions Program (TAAP) volunteers is a key piece of the college admissions puzzle. Through involvement in outreach activities and by interviewing applicants, TAAP extends the reach and enhances the quality of the University’s undergraduate recruitment.
Fitting into the Puzzle
The Tufts Alumni Admissions Program (TAAP) has grown from a handful of alumni volunteers in 1959 to an international network of over 3,750 members.
By interviewing prospective students and assisting with both recruitment and enrollment initiatives, TAAP volunteers thoughtfully donate their time and energy to generate excitement about Tufts and to support the University’s admissions goals in their home area.
Members of TAAP are valuable for both their knowledge of Tufts and the example they set as successful graduates of the University. TAAP personalizes the admissions process for applicants and helps to create positive word-of-mouth traffic about Tufts.
Identifying and Inspiring Fit
Acting as a face for Tufts, TAAP responsibilities include:
- participating in outreach initiatives
- representing Tufts at college fairs
- interviewing applicants
TAAP allows alumni to share and celebrate their own Tufts experience while also empowering them to connect with and share the Tufts experience as it exists today. While meeting with students and championing Tufts in their home areas, TAAP members are uniquely positioned to highlight the qualities of the students they meet and to share the intangibles that might make them wonderful fits for Tufts.
TAAP is a wonderful gateway to discovering the satisfaction that comes from supporting Tufts. Please join TAAP and realize the opportunity you have to connect more deeply with both Tufts and your home community.
