Sun Devil Send-Offs

Welcome new students to the Sun Devil family!

The ASU Alumni Association works with Chapters around the country to host Sun Devil Send-Offs in the summer for new students joining ASU.

These events provide new students and their families a great opportunity to ask alumni questions about their ASU experience and make friends even before they arrive on campus. Join us at these gatherings to share your Sun Devil stories with our new students and their families.

ASU students who have attended Send-Offs are appreciative of the chance to meet ASU alumni and other freshmen and indicate that this event was helpful in preparing them for their time at the university.

Sun Devil Send-Offs from ASU Alumni Association on Vimeo.

Cami Samuels, Portland, OR – Broadcast Journalism Major 
"I really liked getting to meet other new students who live in the same state and area that I do. I think it is really helpful to know them going into the school year and we all exchanged phone numbers and info so we can stay in contact."

Jordan Frakes, Westlake Village, CA – Journalism Major 
"I really enjoyed the introductions. Everyone comes from different backgrounds and attend ASU for different reasons. Hearing what other students were majoring in was interesting too."

Mikealina Mederos, Manhattan Beach, CA – Speech and Hearing Sciences Major 
"I really enjoyed meeting new people, and I liked how I was able to ask my questions about the school."
