Meaningful Experiences

GETTING INVOLVED AS A PARENT AT ALBRIGHT COLLEGE

 
ADDING TO THE ALBRIGHT EXPERIENCE

Students new to Albright College soon find a wealth of new experiences and educational opportunities available to them here. In fact, many students have told us that by the time they graduate, they’ve come to consider their time at Albright the best thing that’s ever happened to them.

For many students, the involvement of their parents adds yet another dimension of satisfaction to the Albright experience. When parents become involved, the entire Albright community, as well as their own student, benefits.

Following are a number of ways you can get involved in both your student’s education and the life of the Albright community. After you look through the many opportunities, we hope you’ll decide to join our team of parent volunteers. When you do, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you’re making a positive contribution to your student’s experience at Albright College.

VOLUNTEER WITH OUR ADMISSION OFFICE

Parents who volunteer with our Admission Office are a valuable resource for prospective students and their parents, because they can share their firsthand knowledge of the Albright College experience.

  • PARENTS AND ALUMNI SEEKING STUDENTS
    The Admission Office coordinates the PASS program to enable prospective students and their parents to meet face to face with Albright alumni and their parents. The program enables alumni and parents to share their enthusiasm about Albright by hosting recruiting events in various locations throughout the year. If you’re interested, please contact the Admission Office at 610-921-7700.

  • COLLEGE FAIRS
    Join one of Albright’s admission counselors at a college/career fair, where you’ll have the opportunity to speak with prospective students and their families about what it’s like to be the parent of an Albrightian. If you’re interested, please contact the Admission Office at 610-921-7700.

  • ON-CAMPUS OPEN HOUSES
    Spend a day assisting the Admission Office at an on-campus open house. High school students and their families come to campus to learn as much as they can about Albright, and you can help by telling them about your experiences as the parent of an Albright student. If you’re interested, please contact the Admission Office at 610-921-7700.

  • REFER A STUDENT
    Informing Albright admission counselors about quality prospective students is a great way to enhance our applicant pool. Parents are encouraged to advocate for a student’s admission to the College, so if you’re acquainted with an applicant and wish to provide a recommendation, please speak to an admission counselor. If you’re interested, please contact the Admission Office at 610-921-7700.

  • INTERVIEW POTENTIAL STUDENTS FOR SHIRK SCHOLARSHIPS
    Each January, the Admission Office hosts Berks County students on campus as they interview for Eugene L. Shirk Scholarships. If you are interested in assisting with the interview process, please contact the Admission Office at 610-921-7700.

SHARE YOUR PERSONAL CAREER JOURNEY WITH OUR STUDENTS

SUMMER SEND-OFF EVENTS
