Summer Send-Offs

Catch the Summer Wave!

Each summer the Office of Parent and Family Relations coordinates Summer Send-Off Socials around the country to welcome incoming first-year Toreros and their families. This past summer, we hosted 31 different events in various cities around the country. 

These events are generally hosted by parents and alumni. At these events, USD representatives, administrators, parent board members, current parents and students are in attendance to answer your questions. We encourage students and their families to attend to start making friends with Toreros in your area and to get your USD questions answered. Read a Summer Send-Off testimonial by Paul Riley, USD Parent '17 and President Emeritus of the Parents Association Board.

In late May 2020, we will release the Summer 2020 schedule of Summer Send-Offs. If you are a current student, parent, or alumni and would like to volunteer at one of the send-offs or host an event in your city, please email Otherwise, please check back in early summer for the latest updates.
