Summer Send-Offs

Summer Send Off Banner

Each summer Sacred Heart Parent Council members host receptions at their homes to welcome and congratulate our newest Pioneers and their families. Attending a Summer Send-Off is a great way to begin your journey at Sacred Heart and get to know a few more friendly faces before arriving on campus in August. Join incoming freshmen, parents, student ambassadors, and SHU faculty and staff for a Pioneer celebration in your local community. At each event, SHU representatives in attendance answer your questions and share their experience from the University.

Summer Send-Offs for the Class of 2022 are being held between June 21 and July 26. Space is limited at each event, so please register ASAP!
