Summer Send Offs

Welcome to life as a Buckeye! From wearing the Scarlet and Gray to screaming I-O every time you hear O-H, you are now a part of our Ohio State family. Each summer, the Ohio State Alumni Association and its local area alumni clubs host Buckeye Summer Send-offs for new/incoming students. A Summer Send-off is an informal gathering, picnic, or PARTY to congratulate our newest Buckeyes, and to welcome them and their families to Ohio State. This is a great opportunity to meet other students and families who make their homes in your area. Whether you are an Ohio State alum and huge Buckeye fan or are experiencing the Scarlet and Gray for the first time, you can join our Ohio State family in style by attending the Summer Send-off in your area.
Because of the on-going concerns regarding COVID-19, unfortunately we will not be hosting summer send-offs this summer.  If you have further questions or need assistance in any way, please contact Parent and Family Relations at or (614) 292-9153.
