New student send-offs (or summer send-offs) are popular ways to welcome new students and their families to our colleges and universities. They take place in new student home towns all over the world and are often hosted by local alumni chapters and parents. But they're more than just welcome events: there are incredible opportunities when admissions, student affairs, and alumni engagement work together. In this episode of Advancement Live, we'll explore how these events can foster donor engagement, strengthen partnerships with our alumni club volunteers, and be used awareness tools for students – connecting them to alumni from the start of their college careers. Expect insights to those topics and many others as Kim Brown chats with send-off superstars from NYU and UCLA!
