Student Send-Off Parties
Help us welcome the newest Waves to the Pepperdine family! Each summer Seaver College hosts Send-off Parties in locales across the country.
The summer's send-off party season will begin in July. Student send-offs are exciting and informal events held for incoming freshmen prior to their departure for Pepperdine. Send-offs are held in cities spanning the United States and typically occur during the summer months, beginning early July and concluding in mid August. For more information about this year's send-off parties and to register for a party near you, click here.
Why attend a Send-off Party?
1. Get answers to your questions—Returning students and parents have answers.
2. Meet other incoming students—After attending your area’s Send-off Party, you’ll know them!
3. Plus, you’ll meet other parents and students from your area!
Don’t miss this opportunity for incoming students and parents to learn about the Pepperdine experience from returning students, parents and alumni in your area.
My student cannot attend our Send-off Party. May I come to the event so that I can
meet other parents and students in our area?
Absolutely! We understand that students may have prior commitments—We would be delighted if parents come even if their student cannot.
Send-offs can be hosted by alumni, Seaver College parents or friends of Pepperdine University. At the events, Seaver parents help welcome, meet and greet, and answer questions posed by new parents or students.
