Summer send-off

New Student Send-offs sponsored by New Student and Family Programs and VCU Alumni

Jumpstart your VCU experience!

There’s no better way to get excited about starting at VCU this fall than by hanging out and having fun at a summer send-off. It’s our way of saying welcome, and it’s a great chance for you and your family to meet other incoming new students, current students and alumni. You can also build your circle of friends while enjoying good food and having a relaxed time close to home.
