    New Student Send-Offs

    new studentWelcome to the Orange Family!

    Meet future classmates before you get to campus

    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!

    If you’re part of the newest SU class, it won’t be long before you’re headed to Syracuse University and starting life as a college student. Want to make that leap a little easier? Join us in several cities across the West Coast including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle for a New Student Send-Off!

    Held during the months of July and August, these fun, informal gatherings introduce you to new friends before you even arrive on campus. You’ll get to know other first-year students from the West Coast and meet current students and alumni who can answer your questions, give you the inside scoop on what to expect during your first few weeks at SU, and provide your first dose of Orange spirit. Parents are invited too!

    What can you expect at the send-off celebrations?

    • Get to know other 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.
    • Get a fun gift that you'll want to bring to SU.
    • Learn more about your upcoming SU experience!
