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. The 2017 Send-off season was a huge success with more than 35 events happening nationally.  

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.
