The Postcard Project
Registration for the 2015 Postcard Project is now closed. Please check back in January of 2016 to participate for next year's project.
Personal contact with admitted students is an integral component of Ohio University’s recruitment efforts. The purpose of the postcard project is to make contact and congratulate them on being admitted to Ohio University. Most students are exploring other universities as well, and a postcard from a friendly OHIO Volunteer Alumni Admissions Network (VAAN) representative can make a difference!
This year, more than 400 alumni volunteered by writing more than 4,000 postcards to newly admitted students! This project is open to all alumni living in any geographic region in the United States. The project continues throughout the winter and spring months to encourage admitted students to enroll at OHIO.
Undergraduate Admissions will supply alumni with contact information for the students, blank postcards with pre-paid postage, and a timeline for sending the postcards. When possible, alumni will be paired with students with similar academic interests. OHIO VAAN representatives are encouraged to send postcards to at least 10 students, but are welcome to send more!
