The Purdue Alumni Association and the Office of Admissions joined
forces in 1995 to help recruit the best and the brightest to Purdue
The partnership has developed into the PART Program, also
known as Purdue Alumni Recruiting for Tomorrow.
PART volunteers have represented Purdue at more than 160 college
fairs around the country. PART volunteers also piloted new programs,
including inviting new students to local Purdue Alumni Association
events and calling local students to tell them about their Purdue
experience. Our mission is simple: to assist Purdue University in
recruiting qualified, high-ability students. In building the freshmen
class of tomorrow, alumni can play a vital role in critical activities
at each step.

Do you love Purdue? Do you love telling everyone you meet that you
graduated from Purdue? Are you willing to talk to with high school
students about your experience at Purdue? Then you just might be the
perfect PART volunteer!
In support of the mission of PART, volunteers assist in activities which:
- introduce qualified students to Purdue University
- encourage prospective students to apply to Purdue University
- encourage admitted students to attend Purdue University.
As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to introduce
Purdue to prospective students through college fairs, admissions
receptions, phone calls, and contacts with high school counselors.
Volunteers are busiest in the months of September through May with
college fairs, high school visits, and student receptions.
Responsibilities vary at each event. Each volunteer is supplied with
training materials, and volunteers are always encouraged to call the
Admissions office if they have questions.
