Summer Send-Off Parties

A send-off party is an opportunity for incoming first-year students and their families, as well as current students and their families, to get acquainted before the fall term begins. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to meet other SMU students from their geographic area.

The University welcomes and supports those current students, parents and alumni who would like to host a send-off party in their geographic area. Hosts are designated on a first-come, first-served basis. The University supports the efforts of the host by providing a list of all incoming and current students in the area, invitations and postage for the send-off party, and SMU giveaways for the guests. The hosts are responsible for any food or beverage costs incurred. Hosts are encouraged to follow a simple and inexpensive format.

As a SeRVe representative, you are encouraged to attend any send-off parties in your area hosted by a fellow volunteer, parent or student or consider hosting one yourself.
