Represent Simmons at a local college fair
Staffing college fairs is a fun way to significantly help Simmons. It's also enjoyable to interact with the next generation of college students! This is a volunteer opportunity for alumnae of all ages. Volunteers receive all the training and materials they need, as well as ongoing communication about student recruitment efforts and college fair representation.
Refer a student to Simmons
Any alumna can submit referrals by filling out the referral form, or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the student's name, mail and email address, and high school name and graduation year. Please indicate if the student is a relation. Alumnae also can encourage students to visit the Simmons website to request an admissions kit. The website offers convenient online application options, links to academic departments and faculty, plus online registration to campus admission events.
Simmons welcomes references to our various graduate programs. If you are interested in referring a student for one of Simmons's graduate programs, please email email@example.com. Please include the student's name, mail and email address, high school name and graduation year, name of undergraduate college (if applicable), and name of the Simmons graduate program or school that you think the student would like to receive information about.
