Student Send-offs

Each year, UVA Clubs around the world coordinate Student Send-off parties for incoming first-years, transfers, returning, and graduate students as well as parents and families. These social gatherings are a great opportunity to meet and ask questions of current students, parents, alumni, and University staff, and range from backyard barbecues to picnics in the local park to ice cream socials.

You will meet other UVA students and parents to begin building a network within the UVA community. You may choose to attend the party in your area, or if you are traveling or spending the summer in another location, enjoy one on the road.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Find your UVA Club Student Send-off party arranged alphabetically by state. International Student Send-offs are arranged by country.
Over 80 events will take place around the world this summer. Check back often for new parties.
