Summer Send-offs

Summer Send-offs are a great way to meet Ole Miss families in your area while allowing your student to interact with other classmates in the freshman cohort.  Representatives from the University and the Alumni Association often attend to answer all of your questions.

Summer Send-offs are business casual social events at a parent or alumni home or restaurant in the host city.  The events usually last about two hours, take place in the early evening, offer heavy hors d’oeuvres, and feature speakers from the university.

More information will be sent to your home if you are located near one of the following areas.  Send-offs are based on locations with a large population of students attending from the area and volunteer hosts of incoming freshmen or alumni.
