Berklee's Admissions Alumni Ambassador Program encourages alumni to:
- stay connected.
- get involved.
Alumni ambassadors have the opportunity to be involved with assisting the Office of Admissions in identifying and recruiting talented applicants across the globe. These volunteers participate in college recruitment events, support the audition and interview initiative, and represent Berklee on and off campus to the general community.

"The Admissions Alumni Ambassador Program is awesome! Since my graduation in 2014, I was able to stay in touch with the school and to help recruit the next generation of Berklee students. Being a part of the Audition and Interview process and college fairs in various cities in Ohio has given me the chance to connect directly with prospective students in the music community and share my Berklee experience with them. Furthermore, representing Berklee at a major percussion conference (Percussive Arts Society International Convention) since 2013 has provided me with an inspiring experience in the professional world and given me confidence to create my own business in Columbus.”

"There's nothing quite like the Admissions Alumni Ambassador Program when it comes to giving back to your alma mater on a personal level. I owe a lot of my current growth to the years I spent at Berklee College of Music. At the same time, I also think that the unique experiences I went through would be worth sharing with aspiring and up-and-coming Berklee students. By being an alumni ambassador, I get to share this knowledge and these experiences in the hopes that I can help young aspiring musicians get a better start with their Berklee education."
