Alumni help recruit new Gophers around the world

Thousands of prospective students around the world now know about the University of Minnesota, thanks to the volunteer efforts of our outstanding alumni. Sixteen alumni represented the U of M at student recruitment fairs in Turkey, France, Georgia, Kazakhstan, and Japan.

"Thanks to these alumni, our recruitment team was able to reach approximately 6,000 more students during the Fall 2013 recruitment season than we could have without the extra help," said Audra Gerlach, director of international recruitment.
