CAAAN assists the admissions office by meeting with local candidates to answer questions, provide a positive perspective on the University, and accumulate additional information about the applicants. They then share the information with admissions in a post-meeting report.
Here are some stats about CAAAN’s 2012 accomplishments:
Number of CAAAN volunteers: 9,500 alumni from 50 states and 50 countries
Number of CAAAN Committee Chairs: 350
Total Applicant Count: 37,771 (+4% from 2011)
Applicants assignable to active CAAAN committees: 31,477*
Number of Alumni Assignments Made: 24,472
Number of Reports Submitted by alumni: 19,645
*The Hotel School and the Architecture major conduct their own applicant meetings/interviews, which is why not everyone gets assigned to a CAAAN committee.
