Community Service and Outreach Activities


Department of Prospective Student Relations

The mission of the Department of Prospective Student Relations is to serve our communities, prospective students, and K-12 schools through recruiting efforts and partnerships with community organizations. To accomplish this, we must strive to provide prospective students, parents, high schools and communities with the most accurate information regarding Blinn College programs, admissions procedures and the enrollment process.

Our responsibilities include:

  • Recruiting future students to all five campuses
  • Advancing P-16 Initiatives
  • Coordinating school relations in K-12
  • Overseeing Blinn’s Mobile Go Center

We are fortunate to have a dedicated team of individuals who are passionate about Blinn College and increasing the college-going culture in our service area. Prospective Student Advisors make personal visits to high schools throughout the State of Texas, with particular emphasis on classroom presentations for service-area schools each Spring. Ambassadors serve as tour guides on the Brenham and Bryan campuses. These student workers are official College spokespersons selected for their communications skills, composure, maturity and academic standing.

To contact the Department of Prospective Student Relations for Brenham, Schulenburg, and Sealy, contact (979) 830-4152. For Bryan, contact (979) 209- 7541. We look forward to great things in the future for our students and communities.
