Volunteer to recruit

BAR volunteers may represent the university at college fairs in their communities, serve on an in-person or virtual panel, assist with registration and interact with guests at local receptions, and/or share a written testimonial. No matter the activity, the alumni and parent perspective is valuable as students consider becoming a Buckeye. BAR volunteers play an essential role in helping us to recruit a diverse and talented class.
