Summer Send-Offs

Hosted by UMD families and alumni, Summer Send-Off parties are a wonderful opportunity for our newest students and their families to come together and meet other Terps from your hometown or area. These informal gatherings are designed to ease the anxiety of leaving home, foster a sense of community, and celebrate being part of the Terp Family. It’s also a time for parents and family members to meet others and continue building your own support system as you embark on this journey together with your student. Interact with current students, parents/families and alumni, get the inside scoop on life at UMD, and celebrate this life achievement in Terp style!
