Get involved

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

Parent and Family Programs

Bearcat Family Association Facebook Page

Be sure to "like" our Bearcat Family Association facebook page to receive daily updates from the university.  This page will be dedicated to providing parents with updated communication including advice, deadlines, volunteer opportunities, and prizes.

Volunteer on Campus

There are key times during the year when we can use the support of parent volunteers.  Family Weekend in October is one time when it is helpful to have current parents help with registration, and point new families towards offices and resources that they found helpful.  Admitted Student Open Houses in April are another excellent time when current parents can offer their advice and insight to families considering attending Binghamton University.  Interested in volunteering? Email: families@binghamton.edu

Join our Parents Fund Committee

The Parents Fund Committee is a small group of parents who are passionate about Binghamton University.  They serve as an important link between administration and our families and its members are advancement advocates for the Fund for Student Life.  You can learn more about the committee here.

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 Event Volunteers

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. More information is on the Employer section of CDC's website.
