Brown Alumni Schools Committees
BASC - Brown Alumni Schools Committees, is the program that identifies and interviews Brown applicants. With the rising number of applicants to selective colleges like Brown and the growing number of Early Decision applicants, Brown's goal of contacting and interviewing applicants has become more and more challenging. You can help Brown by allocating a couple hours to interview Brown applicants. You get a chance to meet the next generation of Brown students, while providing an invaluable service to the Brown Admissions Department. No matter where in the world you live, you can assist the Admission Office by interviewing applicants, speaking to students at college fairs, hosting acceptance parties, and helping to bring the Brown Experience to high school students in your area.
If you would like to volunteer for BASC, please send an email to BASC@brownclubofboston.com. You can also learn more by going to Brown Alumni website.
How much time is involved?
Begin as a BASC interviewer conducting three or more interviews per year with local applicants. If you are able to contribute more of your time - represent Brown at college fairs, organize an acceptance party, or pursue a leadership position as an Area Chair. Area Chairs coordinate all of the BASC efforts for their local committee.
What kind of training is offered?
The BASC Volunteer Handbook is available online. In addition, the BASC Office sends out an information packet when you first sign up for BASC. Your Area Chair and Regional Director are excellent sources of advice, training, and encouragement in your local area.
How can I join?
