The Alumni Association is once again excited to partner with the Office of Enrollment Management to bring the Alumni Student Recruitment Program back this year.

The purpose of the Alumni Student Recruitment Program is to have alumni write personalized letters to potential students considering attending the University but have not fully committed yet. Alumni and students are matched based on similarities, such as their area of study or geographic region. Those who write at least 100 letters will receive a UL Lafayette garden flag.

This program allows volunteers to have a direct impact on student recruitment. Kayla Hebert, associate director of strategic initiatives, notes that this program also aligns with the Alumni Association’s strategic plan. “The strategic plan is guided by four pillars: connecting alumni to each other, the University, the community and the students. This initiative helps us achieve the goals of connecting alumni to their University and students,” she said.

Hebert also added that this program is an excellent opportunity to volunteer with the Alumni Association. “The Alumni Student Recruitment Program is a great avenue for volunteers to illustrate their pride for their alma mater and encourage prospective students to continue their education at UL Lafayette,” she said.

Alumna Diamond Williams is a past participant of the program and loves that she can help the next generation of students discover what it means to be a Ragin’ Cajun. “In sharing my story, I aim to instill confidence in their ability to make a choice that resonates with their unique path and ambitions,” Williams said. 

She also believes volunteering for this program is an excellent way to give back to the institution. “It’s an opportunity to contribute to a legacy that extends beyond our time on campus. Participating in this program is an investment in the future of the University — ensuring that future generations benefit from the same enriching experiences we all enjoyed,” she said. 

Please complete this form if you’re interested in participating in the Alumni Student Recruitment Program. Also, be on the lookout for a new event this year where volunteers can meet in person to write letters for the program. The Alumni Association will release more information about this event soon.
