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.

Check out photos from this year's Send-Offs. We will be updating the link as we get more.
