Hello, Admissions Volunteers!
My name is Kayla Rohr. I am one of the Assistant Directors in the Office of Admissions and I work closely with the Office of Development through their admissions volunteer program. Each fall we travel the country and the globe hoping to connect with students that will one day fill our classrooms, campus and organizations with passion, excitement and ideas that will change the world. Throughout this process we visit high schools, attend college fairs and conduct interviews – all of these events reach hundreds of students and inspire them to pursue their next step in their educational careers with American University. A portion of our work could not be done without the support of our committed volunteers, like yourself. Thank you for taking the time to give back to American University in such a meaningful way. I look forward to connecting with you throughout the fall.
