Attendees of a Summer Send-Off Reception gathered around a fire pit.

Summer Send Off receptions are a tradition at Amherst College. Held across the country, Summer Send Off receptions are an opportunity for alumni, current students and their families to welcome new students and their families to the Amherst community. These events typically happen in July and August of each year and are hosted by alumni or parent volunteers. Many of the summer 2019 Send Off reception locations will be available by June.
