By becoming an IIT Admission Ambassador, you can volunteer your time to IIT by:
- Attending Undergraduate Admission events throughout the year
- Referring prospective students to IIT — online form
- Communicating with admitted students (by phone, letters, email, etc.)
- Staying updated with a bimonthly newsletter from the Alumni Association
- Becoming part of the formal organization which recruits the future alumni who will continue the traditions of Illinois Institute of Technology.
- Attending regional college fairs and visiting high schools in your area
- Joining Alumni Chapters to stay connected with IIT in multiple ways
There are times when you may need to use these resources to help as you spread the word about IIT! Be sure to use our updated brochures as a great reference tool.

If you know an interested student, please encourage them to come visit IIT so they can experience what its like to be a Scarlet Hawk for themselves! We will work with each student to help them gather as much information as possible while on campus, whether that involves meeting with an admission counselor, attending a class, or taking a campus tour.
