Preview parties are local information sessions hosted by SMU Undergraduate Admission from mid-August through October. These sessions aid in introducing prospective SMU students and parents to the University, provide an overview of SMU and include vital enrollment information.
As an SMU Admission Volunteer, you are important to the success of the event because you can share your experiences at SMU firsthand. You may be called upon to sit on a panel or sit at a table with students and parents to answer questions about the SMU experience. Review this list of student and parent frequently-asked questions prior to the event.
These parties are usually held in high-yield recruitment areas, including Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Memphis, Nashville, Phoenix, San Francisco, St. Louis, the Tri-State area and Washington D.C. The Alumni Office will get in touch with you to request your help, or you can email us to find out if there is a Preview Party coming up near you.
