I hope that your new year is going well. In March, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions will launch the annual minority student calling project. The Buckeye Alumni Recruitment (BAR) African American and Hispanic/Latino Community Calling Project is a collaboration of alumni and faculty/staff members at The Ohio State University who are interested in making phone calls to admitted high school seniors who have not paid their acceptance fee. The purpose of the project is to speak to admitted students regarding the multifaceted, diverse and tight-knit community at Ohio State. The connection to this community begins once a student is admitted to the university. And it continues well beyond graduation, which you as an alumnus of the university can attest to.
We invite you to share what the Ohio State community means to you with the incoming class of admitted students as they make their final college decision. Calls will be made to students anytime during the week of March 1 - 8, 2015. The number of students you will be asked to call during that week will vary depending on the number of students who have been admitted and the number of alumni participating in the project. Our goal is to have you call no more than 15 students. If you sign up to participate in the project, you will receive a link to on-line training and pertinent information you can share with the students.
Feel free to contact me if you have additional questions. To sign up to participate in the calling project this year please click on this link: https://ohiostate.volunteermatch.org/search/opp1891913.jsp
and sign up through Ohio State Volunteer Match. Please sign up no later than Friday, February 13, 2015 if you plan to participate in this important initiative. Thank you for your consideration in this effort.
