Are you interested in hosting a Summer Sendoff?

Summer Sendoffs are casual social gatherings usually held at a family or alumni’s home or a venue provided by a parent or alumnus/a. These events give students a chance to develop meaningful connections with other students from their hometowns, who also are headed to Oxford. The university sponsors the events and provides all the logistical support to the host families.¬† All the host is responsible¬†for is venue and refreshments.

Host cities this year include Orlando, Houston, Northern California and Tampa. The Ole Miss Family Association is looking for new families who are interested in hosting these events in their hometowns. If you would like more information on how to get involved in the 2019 summer sendoffs, please contact Merrill Magruder at 662-915-5051.
