Many My Carolina Clubs host Freshmen Send-Off parties for Carolina's incoming freshmen class during July and August to help these students meet new classmates and offer alumni a chance to share stories about Carolina. These events are for alumni, students, and their parents and will give you the opportunity to meet current students and staff from the Admissions Office, Student Affairs and My Carolina.
