Summer Send-Offs

Summer Send-Offs are hosted in various regions throughout the state of Florida and beyond. These events are gatherings in which incoming students and parents come together in the same area to network with each other just before school starts in the fall semester. It is a great opportunity for students to make new friends to share in their university experience together. Parents often exchange phone numbers at these events to create a network of others to depend upon throughout the year for rides to Boca, package delivery, emergency services, and much more.
