Freshman Send Off Program Welcomes Class of 2016

Freshman Send Off


Welcome Class of 2016!  This fall, the University of Georgia will enroll approximately 5,000 first-year students.  But before they settle into a dorm and make new friends, the UGA Alumni Association’s Freshmen Send Off program will provide an opportunity to celebrate with this stellar group while also showcasing UGA and its alumni. 


The Freshman Send Off, a program coordinated by the UGA Alumni Association, allows UGA alumni to introduce the rich traditions of UGA to its newest class of students.  These special events serve as an official welcome from the Alumni Association on behalf of more than 275,000 University of Georgia graduates worldwide and offer support of hometown UGA Alumni Chapters.  Incoming freshmen and their families are invited as honored guests to experience the thrill of their first event as UGA students! 


The UGA Alumni Association introduced the Freshmen Send Off program as a way to build lifelong relationships between the university and each student.  Traditionally, this relationship began the first day a student stepped on campus.  But now with the Freshmen Send Off, the newest Bulldogs are welcomed into the Red and Black family before they leave their hometown! 


Freshmen Send Off events occur throughout the summer at more than 30 UGA Alumni Chapters across the country.  For more information, stay tuned to the local alumni chapter pages on the UGA Alumni Association website .
