For First-year Families

First-year Student Summer Send-offs

Join us for a summer send-off reception in your region to connect with current Wellesley students, families, and alumnae before the start of the 2020-2021 academic year. Please check back for dates!


What is a summer send-off?

Hosted by one of Wellesley's alumnae clubs, both nationally and internationally, summer send-offs are a great opportunity for alumnae, current students, and their families to warmly welcome incoming students and their families to the Wellesley community. These events typically happen in July and August of each year.

Send-offs are a fun way for your student to start her journey. Plus. when she arrives on campus, she will already know some friendly faces from home. There are all sorts of summer send-off events—from BBQs, teas, picnics and potlucks with Wellesley bingo, alumnae reflections and insights, or even introductions to hooprolling.

How are the locations chosen?

Wellesley is proud to have over 75 local alumnae clubs worldwide. The clubs listed below are those that have chosen to host a summer send-off this year.

We are traveling this summer. May I attend a send-off at any location?

Your club affiliation is based on your home zip code. It may be possible to attend a send-off other than the one hosted by your local club. Please contact us for further information.

When will we receive an invitation?

You will receive an email invitation in early summer if there is an event in your area.

Summer 2020 Send-off Events TBD
