Parents of current undergraduates serve as our best resources for the parents of prospective students. APAP parent volunteers help in the following ways:
Congratulations Calling Program
During the spring, current APAP parent volunteers contact and congratulate families of students who have been admitted to encourage them to enroll. APAP volunteers share their experiences as WashU parents, answer questions about the university, and provide information about upcoming admitted student and family events. These connections are great ways for current families to share their love of WashU with prospective families.
Parent to Parent Calling
During early summer, APAP parent members volunteer to call parents of enrolling students from their area to welcome them to the WashU community. These calls are great opportunities for parent volunteers to connect with the parents of enrolling students and answer any questions they may have about the university and St. Louis.
Parents Resource List
APAP parents volunteers serve as resources to admitted students and their parents by sharing their contact information on the Parents Resource List. We encourage parents of admitted students to call or email a current parent in their area with questions.
International Resource List
International APAP parent volunteers (and alumni) serve as resources to admitted international students and their parents by sharing their contact information on the International Resource List. We encourage parents of admitted international students to call or email a current parent in their area with questions.
APAP hosts several events throughout the year for prospective, admitted, and enrolling students. Our APAP volunteers are essential to the success of these events. Visit APAP Events for more information.
