Join the team!

Fill out the Roo Crew interest form.


It's a way for alumni and those passionate about UA to stay connected. Individuals who complete the Roo Crew interest form can volunteer at their convenience in a number of areas they choose from that help with:

  • Recruiting potential students to the University
  • Providing opportunities for student success
  • Assisting with job placement for UA graduates

Over 1,000 alumni, friends, parents of current students and community members take part in admissions visitation days, speaking to student organizations, visiting classes, critiquing resumes and much more.


Upon filling out the Roo Crew interest form and joining the team, we share opportunities with you to get involved based on the interests you indicated.

There are no set required hours. No meetings. No money. You decide how much time you are able to spend with us and how you would like to make a difference.
