2017 Summer Send-Offs
Summer Send-Offs are a wonderful opportunity for the University of Maryland’s newest students to come together and meet other Terps from their hometown or area who will be a part of their incoming class. These informal gatherings take place across the country and are designed to ease the anxiety of leaving home, foster a sense of community, and celebrate being part of the Terp Family. Many new students will have already attended orientation, so a Summer Send-Off is the perfect time to continue forming new friendships with fellow Terps and get answers to any new questions. It is also a time for parents and family members to build their own support system as families embark on this journey together. New students and families can learn more about life at UMD from current students, families, staff, alumni. Join us for a program this summer!
Parent/family volunteers of current students are needed to host or co-host Summer Send-Offs. Learn what is involved and let us know you'd like to become a host or co-host!
Summer Send-Off dates and locations will be shared beginning in June 2017.
