Community for Incoming Students

Incoming and current students are not just welcomed but encouraged to attend the Sendoffs in their region. New students will have the chance to meet current students in their area and learn sage advice from their peers as they begin their new life at Lehigh. Current students can both welcome new students to the Lehigh family and network with alumni in their area.

Peace of Mind for Parents

Parents are part of the Lehigh family too! Parents can come to Sendoffs to get the peace of mind they need to confidently send their student off to campus. Meet and share your excitement with other parents, alumni, and new and current students. This is one of the best places for parents to learn about what to expect as your student begins their journey at Lehigh.
