Get involved

Volunteering is one of the many ways interested parents can get involved at Binghamton University.

Parent Admissions Volunteers

Personal Outreach

Parent Volunteers are needed to promote Binghamton University and to write emails or make congratulatory calls to admitted students. Through these one-on-one outreach efforts, you can share your own student's positive experience at Binghamton and further encourage admitted students to send in their deposits and attend.

Prospective and Admitted Student Reception Host

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions invites admitted students to attend information sessions held in spring in metro New York and other locations. You can help admissions staff with registration, greet people, talk informally about the University and, on occasion, present brief testimonials and participate in question-and-answer sessions. Contact Andrew Morris, associate director, for more information.

Career Development Volunteers

Hire a Binghamton Student

Because your student is at Binghamton University, you understand the quality of our students. Encourage your employer to use our eRecruiting service to post internships, summer jobs, and permanent opportunities and to consider attending our job fairs.
