We hope that you enjoy the exciting first few days of college. There’s lots to learn and plenty to do—as you can see by this guide. One great
way to get involved is to volunteer with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, where you’ll meet new people, help us reach out to
prospective students, and get unbeatable experience for your résumé.

Check out our volunteer positions for:

       ·    Overnight hosting—Did you stay in a residence hall with a current student before you came to Hopkins? Now it’s
            your turn to show a newbie the ropes while helping them get acquainted with the university.
       ·    Open House—Open House is an exciting time for the Admissions Office and we can always use an extra set of hands.
            We hold well-attended events in the summer, fall, and spring.
       ·    Tour guides—Get exercise, learn to speak clearly and loudly to a group, and master the art of walking backwards.
            Open only for sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
       ·    Student interviewers—Speak with prospective students about their goals and ambitions and tell them about your
            time at Hopkins. Open only for juniors and seniors.
       ·    Multicultural student recruitment programs—Help us reach out to students through e-mail and phone-a-thons,
            tours, community projects, and overnight hosting, as well as special events.
       ·    Engineering ambassadors—Show prospective students around the labs and facilities and help with other engineering
            events and outreach efforts.
