New Student Send-Off Parties

2011 Send-Off Party Table

Sponsored by the Parents Program and Alumni Affairs Office of Engagement

In hometowns across the nation, we welcomed our newest Waves from across the country this summer at our special New Student, Parent, and Family Send-off Parties and Alumni Gatherings!


What is a send-off party and alumni gathering?

These events were designed especially to welcome new students, parents, and family members of newly admitted Seaver College students as well as visit with local Pepperdine alumni and friends.  Send-offs and alumni gatherings were held in cities spanning the United States and occur during the summer months, beginning late May and concluding in early August.

The parties provided an opportunity for:

  • New students, parents, and families can mingle with Pepperdine leadership, meet one another, be inspired by alumni, and ask all their questions before arriving on campus this August.
  • Alumni can network with one another, meet Pepperdine leadership and discuss the new vision, and encourage the next generation of Pepperdine Waves as they begin their college journey.
