New Student Send-Offs 2022

Join the VCU Office of Alumni Relations, VCU New Student and Family Orientation and Family Council for our Summer Send-offs to welcome incoming VCU students to the Ramily! Students and families will get to know other students, meet current students and connect with engaged alumni who can answer your questions, give you the inside scoop on what to expect during your first few weeks at VCU, and provide your first dose of Ram spirit.

Questions? Contact Sarah Ramkey, assistant director of student and regional alumni programs, at
