College Alumni Admissions Interviewing
Help us recruit prospective students, interview Harvard College applicants, and welcome accepted students by volunteering for our Schools & Scholarships Committee, the alumni interviewing program! Interviewing is an important part of the application process and helps bring the applicant to life. Depending on their bandwidth, each alumni interviewer meets with a handful of prospective students between September and March. Take a look at this video featuring interviewers talking about why they interview to learn more. To express interest in interviewing please fill out this information form.
To be eligible to participate as an interviewer, you must be a degree-holding alumnus/a from Harvard College or one of Harvard’s graduate schools. Should you have any questions about your alumni status or eligibility as an interviewer, please contact the Admissions Alumni Interviewing Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Clubs and Shared Interest Groups
With nearly 200 Harvard Clubs and 60 Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) open to University alumni worldwide, these communities are based in shared geography, profession, identity, and interest. Wherever you are and whatever you’re passionate about, odds are that there’s a Club or SIG for you! Clubs and SIGs are alumni-led and governed, working in partnership with the HAA to connect Harvard alumni to each other and to the University.
Check out the Harvard Clubs and SIG directories to learn more about these alumni communities and how you can get involved.
Crimson Connect makes it easy for alumni to become social media ambassadors for Harvard. Alumni want to hear from each other, and through our Crimson Connect program, you can connect with your classmates while helping us share the latest stories out of Harvard.
As a member, you receive monthly emails with shareable content to post on the social channels of your choice. You will get news highlighting student and alumni accomplishments, faculty research, and much more. All we ask is that you share it with your network!
The HAA has a historic tradition of public service. Through programs like Non Profit Recruitment and Engagement Fairs, Early College Awareness, and the Summer Community Service Fellowship, alumni who volunteer through our programs are making a difference across the globe.
