Summer Send-offs

Summer Send-Offs 2020

Available in early August, our virtual Summer Send-offs create a wonderful opportunity for Binghamton University's newest students and families to come together and meet other Bearcats from their hometown or out-of-state! Registration for these virtual events will open later in the summer. Make sure you join our Bearcat Family to be sure to get notifications.

Why do we have Summer Send-offs?

Summer Send-offs create a wonderful opportunity for Binghamton University's newest students and families to come together and meet other new Bearcats, as well as meet some current students and parents. These informal gatherings will be hosted via Zoom and are designed to ease the anxiety of leaving home, foster a sense of community and celebrate being part of the Binghamton University family. They are also a time to get any of those last-minute questions answered before students come to campus!

These Zoom events:

  • Connect new students and their families to other incoming students and parents.
  • Connect families within a geographic region.
  • Allow new families to ask a Binghamton University staff member, alumni and current families questions.
  • Encourage students and their families to have fun and feel welcomed!
