New Student Send-Offs

Welcome to the Orange Family!

New Student Send-Offs are held during the summer to welcome new students to the SU family. They are a great way to meet other new students, parents, and current students, and to have your last-minute questions answered!

What can you expect at the send-off celebrations?

  • Get to know fellow new students in a casual, relaxed setting like a park, restaurant, or even the home of an SU alum or parent.
  • Meet your hosts—SU alumni clubs that love their alma mater!
  • Receive a fun gift that you’ll want to bring to SU.
  • Learn more about your upcoming SU experience.

Questions? Contact Kate Ludwig in the Office of Alumni Engagement at 315.443.3258 or sendoff@syr.edu.
