Summer Send Offs

Each summer the Office of Parent Relations coordinates Summer Send Off events around the country to welcome incoming freshmen and transfer students. These events are designed to offer a pre-orientation welcome, provide pertinent information, and allow students to meet others from their area prior to arriving at USD.

These events are generally hosted by parents and alumni. At many of the events, USD representatives, administrators, parent board members, current parents and students are often in attendance to answer your questions. We encourage families to attend and get those important questions answered and make connections to build a network of familiar faces for when you get to campus.

You will be sent a complete list of dates and locations in June followed by a detailed invitation approximately three weeks prior to the event date. If you will be traveling to any of these areas and would like to attend a Send Off, please contact us for additional details.
