New Student Send-Offs

Giving our newest students a warm Syracuse University welcome

Held during the months of July and August in cities across the country, New Student Send-Offs are fun, informal gatherings introduce incoming students to new friends before they even arrive on campus. You’ll get to know other first-year students from your area and meet current students and alumni who can answer questions, give you the inside scoop on what to expect during your first few weeks at Syracuse University, and provide your first dose of Orange spirit. Parents are invited, too!

Information on New Student Send-Offs is posted in May each year.
