Alumni Student Recruitment

VanderCook College of Music is built on a strong tradition of excellence in musicianship and in academics. You can give back to the college and share in pride and loyalty to your alma mater by encouraging talented students with a passion for music to apply to and attend VanderCook.

As a VanderCook alum, you can provide the one-on-one interaction, personal attention and encouragement that can make the difference between a student of yours choosing VanderCook and a career in music education over another school and future. Sharing your perspective as a VanderCook graduate is an essential way to continue the VanderCook legacy and tradition of excellence. Student recruitment not only brings back the nostalgia from your VanderCook experience, but also helps to keep the future of music education secure.

You can help us:

  • Increase the number of highly competitive and qualified students considering VanderCook at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and to increase the percentage of admitted students who enroll.
  • Provide a local information source for inquiring students, applicants, admitted and enrolled students, and their families.
  • Support the recruitment efforts of VanderCook's admissions staff.

If you are interested helping us recruit the next generation of VanderCook grads, please contact our admissions team at 312.788.1122.

With your support, we can do even better.  How can you help?

  • Attend A Night at the Pops or the TrusTEE Open Golf Outing with family, friends and colleagues. We promise you will meet some great people - fellow alumni and supporters of  VanderCook - while having a wonderful time.
  • Donate items for our silent auction at A Night at the Pops and items for our raffle and golfer swag bag at the TrusTEE Open Golf Outing.
  • Become an event sponsor or encourage vendors and businesses you patronize to become event sponsors.
  • Make a personal donation.

Look for your invitations to these events. To learn more about how you can help, contact Monica Soto at 312.788.1131 or
