Become an Alumni Admissions Ambassador
Help Us Recruit the Best and Brightest
The Office of Alumni Relations and Office of Admissions have partnered to bring the Baker experience firsthand to new and prospective students through the Alumni Ambassador program. Alumni will be matched with newly admitted and prospective students who have similar interests or live in the same area. This outreach is one more opportunity to demonstrate Baker’s strong sense of community and pride in the university.
Alumni Admissions Ambassadors can share their time, resources, and talent in several ways:
Send postcards to new and prospective students.
Participate in admissions programs such as alumni networking events and regional panels.
Create a video testimonial about their Baker experience.
Refer students through the Alumni Referral Scholarship program.

What a great experience being an Alumni Admissions Ambassador has been all these years after graduating from Baker. And everything I needed to participate was provided to me, so it cost me just my time. I’m glad to have helped in my little way.
Jillian Miller, ’15
I chose to become an Alumni Admissions Ambassador because I loved my Baker experience, and I want to encourage others to create their own amazing and memorable Baker experience. View video.
Hannah Schaake, ’13,
Writing postcards for incoming students brought back all the memories and emotions of when I was getting ready to head to Baker for freshman year. It made me really reflect on the impact Baker has had on my life and the wonderful friendship I’ve made through the Baker grapevine. It was an easy way to support Baker that has given me so much!
Emi (Kniffin) Simmons, ’17
Simply put, I became an AAA because I want all students—prospective, admitted, or enrolled—to know they are welcome and wanted at Baker University. Plus, Baker gave so much to me, and writing postcards is the least I can do to give back!
Aaron Whittle, BBA ’19
I decided to be an AAA because Baker University is family oriented, and we are all one family. No matter if you are an incoming freshman or a 50-year alumni, we all are part of the Wildcat family. I want to be involved with something great, and Baker is great!
